How to Get a Digital Library Card to Use Online Services

The Library offers digital library cards that will allow new Ohio patrons to check out and download eBooks, Audio Books, e-Magazines, and stream Videos via the Ohio Digital Library and hoopla. It will also allow access to our many Online Resources. Your digital library card will be updated annually. Call or stop in when you receive the notification so that we may renew your privilege. Holds for physical Library materials may be placed using this card, but it must be exchanged for a physical Library Card to check out physical materials.

To get a digital card, click on "Catalog" on the menu bar at the top of the page, then click on the red “Sign Up For a Library Card” button and fill out the application.  The resulting library card number and pin may be used to access the Ohio Digital Library, hoopla, and the Library’s Online Resources.
