During our unexpected closure due to the COVID-19 pandemic, online library card applications will be expedited if you provide a valid email address. We’ll email your library card number within 72 hours. Once received, the card number can be used immediately. Once we reopen, we’ll mail your physical card and you may come to one of our locations to activate it.
Once received, the card number can be used immediately for digital and e-resources. Your card will give you access to our free e-Branch including e-books, audiobooks, magazines, movies and music, plus resources for research, online learning, hobbies and more. However, the online card cannot be used to place holds on physical items until it’s activated after the library reopens.
All applicants must be residents of Ohio.
Fill out the form to complete the application and receive your library card number.
