Thank you for beginning the process of applying for a new Library Card. Anyone who lives, works or attends school in Ohio may obtain a free library card. After applying for your card you will receive a temporary ID that will allow you to place a hold on one physical item and access all of our online resources.
Your Library Card will be mailed to you within 3 business days.
If you would like to request or check out physical materials, you will need to activate the card. You can do this by visiting any of our library locations with your card and picture ID.
Children under 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian to obtain a full-permissions card. If no parent or guardian is present, a Student Card will be issued, which will allow you to check out 3 items at a time.
CRCPL does not charge late fines for overdue materials. However, excessively late returns will be considered lost and you will be charged the full purchase amount of those items. Materials can be renewed online by signing into your account or by calling us at 740-702-4145.
