Circulation Policy

Applying for a Library Card

  • Complete application.  Patrons are responsible for all items checked out on their card.
  • Show Ohio photo ID, or out-of-state ID with proof of Ohio address.
  • Anyone under age 18 requesting a card must have a parent or guardian present to apply for a card. The parent or guardian is responsible for all items checked out on their child’s card, and must decide if the child has permission to use the internet. The Library does not restrict access to materials based on age.
