Getting a Library Card

Identification

Acceptable forms of identification include driver's license, state of Ohio identification, current student I.D., current utility bill, checkbook, automobile registration, passport or military I.D.

Applicants 18 years of age or over without acceptable identification will be mailed an address verification postal card that will serve as proper identification when brought in to the library.

Applicants who are under 18 may obtain their own library card with the signed consent of a parent or guardian who has one of the acceptable forms of identification.

Applicants under 18 who are not accompanied by an adult at the time of application will be issued a card number. Their parents will be sent an application form and the applicant will receive a card when the signed form is brought in to the library.

Fees

If a card is stolen, the patron will be issued a new card. If a lost card has not reached its expiration date, a $1.00 card replacement fee will be charged to the patron. Stolen cards are replaced free of charge regardless of expiration date.

There is no fee for first-time applicants

Renewal Terms

Borrower's cards are valid for two years and may be renewed upon expiration at no charge.

Borrowing Privileges

Registered borrowers have full borrowing privileges with the following exceptions:

Privileges may be suspended until overdue materials are returned or accounted for, or until fines are paid.

Individuals under 18 years of age must have a release form on file in the Audiovisual Services area in order to borrow videocassettes and DVDs.

Registered borrowers who come to the library without their cards may borrow two books (No toys or Audiovisual materials) provided their card is unexpired and the record of their registration is on file.
