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 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 Student card. The Student card functions the same as a Juvenile card, except borrowing is limited to three items at a time.  Student cards allow access to online resources and databases. Students will need to have a parent come in to add video or internet privileges. 

Fees

There is no fee for first-time applicants. 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.

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 order to borrow movies and access the internet.

Registered borrowers who come to the library without their cards may borrow items if they can show acceptable identification.
