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.

Get A Personal Library Card
The standard personal card includes full borrowing privileges for circulating items with an initial limit of 15 total items for the first 30 days. There after, patrons can borrow up to 50 total items. Your library card also allows you to borrow e-books and other downloadable content, stream video and music, gain remote access to databases and electronic services, use public computers and free printing, to name a few of our services. The card can only be used and account can only be accessed by the named cardholder.
Ohio educators have the opportunity to obtain a Teacher Card. A Teacher Loan library card will be issued to any teacher upon request. If the teacher is currently registered for a personal library card it must be in good standing. Upon determination of eligibility for a Teacher Loan library card, any existing personal library card will be changed to a Teacher Loan card. The teacher loan application must be signed by the teacher’s building administrator. In the case of a home school educator, the individual must present a copy of the “excused from school attendance” letter received from the appropriate school district superintendent. A Teacher Loan is for 30 days for print juvenile books. All other items are subject to standard loan periods. Teacher card applications may be obtained at the Circulation Desk or by clicking here.
