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. Due to the Coronavirus emergency and subsequent library closing, the mailing of new cards may be delayed. You can still access our Online Resources with your temporary ID during this time.
If you would like to request or check out physical materials, you will need to activate your card. You can do this by visiting any of our library locations with your card and picture ID.
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.
