Library cards are free for all residents of the State of Ohio. A valid photo ID in the form of a driver's license or State ID is required along with proof of current address (if not listed on your photo ID). Proof of address must be a utility bill, lease agreement or other comparable document. Library cards must be applied for in-person at this time. However, you are welcome to download and print your application below. 

We currently offer the following 3 types of Library Cards:

Get A Personal Library Card

The standard personal card includes full borrowing privileges for circulating items, e-books and other downloadable content, remote access to databases and electronic services, use of public computers and computer printing, etc. The card can only be used and account can only be accessed by the named cardholder.

Get A Teacher Library Card

Ohio educators have the opportunity to obtain a Teacher Card as long as they have a Personal Card in good standing. Teachers must get a signature from their school administrator before a card will be given. Parents who homeschool their children can also get a Teacher Card with an “Excused from School Attendance” letter from the school district. The Teacher Card gives the educator the opportunity to keep most library items (excluding DVDs) for four weeks instead of the standard two. Materials checked out by the teacher must be used for classroom use only. Teacher card applications may be obtained at the Circulation Desk or by clicking here.
