You can apply for a library card online or in person at any one of our 23 locations. If you apply online and provide an email address, we'll email your library card number within 2-4 days. Once you receive it, your card number can be used immediately. When you receive your physical card in the mail, stop in any location to activate it. You can also use our Curbside Pickup service to activate - just call the number on the sign when you arrive at your location.

With your card, you can reserve books to pick up at any location, use a computer, print, copy, fax and scan, download and stream eBooks, eAudiobooks, movies and music plus access free online tools and resources.

All applicants must be residents of Ohio.

Borrower's Agreement

I will

  • Be financially responsible for material borrowed with this card.
  • Inform the library if my residence or email address changes.
  • Monitor the material my child selects and checks out on this card.
  • Pay all fees for the loss of or damage to materials borrowed with this card.
  • Report a lost/stolen card immediately; I am solely responsible for lost/stolen items on my card until I report it lost/stolen.

The library will

  • Hold parent/guardian solely responsible for ensuring material borrowed by their child/ward is appropriate. The library's collection serves a wide diversity of customers and therefore contains material some feel is inappropriate.
  • Hold parent/guardian of a minor (those age 17 and under) responsible for fees for the loss of or damage to materials borrowed with this card until the child is age 18.
