Library Cards

CRCPL has library cards for kids and teens, adults, educators, visitors, homebound patrons, book clubs, and eResource users.

Library cards may be issued only to residents of Ohio or temporary residents who are expecting to live in Ohio for at least three months.

Full-privilege borrowing cards:  To receive a library card with full borrowing privileges, you must present a photo ID and verification of current address at any library location. If the photo ID does not include your current address, another document with current address is required. A card with limited borrowing privileges may be issued without a photo ID or verification of address.

eResource cards:  If you apply for a library card online, you will receive a temporary ID that will allow you to place a hold on three physical items and access all of our online resources immediately. If you would like to check out physical materials, you will need to upgrade your card. You can do this by visiting any library location with your photo ID and proof of address.


Borrowing Materials

The library provides access to fiction and nonfiction materials for adults, teens and children. We have paperbacks, hardbacks, large print, magazines, Books on CD, Playaway audiobooks, music CDS, DVDs and Blu-Ray discs.

In addition to our vast local collection, patrons can borrow items from other Serving Every Ohioan Consortium member libraries across the state. Interlibrary loan is also available, and we encourage you to fill out a Purchase Suggestion form if you still can't find what you're looking for in our catalog.

Fine Free

We don't charge fines! Just bring the book back. 

If a user has overdue items, borrowing privileges will be suspended until the items are renewed or returned. Items not returned within 42 days of being overdue will be marked as lost, and the user will be billed the cost of the items. Fees may also be incurred for damaged materials.


Auto-Renewal

Most items for general circulation are eligible to be auto-renewed up to four times, as long as there are no other requests on the item, and as long as the item hasn't exceeded four renewals. You can always check your renewals and due dates here:  My Account

Curbside Click & Collect

Simple. Intuitive. Just like picking up groceries or your favorite takeout at the curb. Pick up some books and movies and “Stay In to Check Out.”

How it works:

  • Use the SEO Libraries App to search our catalog and place holds for items you’d like to pick up and check out.
  • We’ll notify you when your items are ready. If your holds are available and your library is currently open, you can click the "Click & Collect" button in the library holds section of the app to initiate a curbside pick-up.
  • Tell us the make, model, and color of your car, and click “I’m on my way.” This information helps us locate you when you arrive.
  • You can give us an estimated time of arrival, or click “Use my location” to let your phone track your trip to the library. Your geolocation information is never stored nor shared with the library; it is simply used to estimate your time of arrival for library staff preparing your materials.
  • Once you’ve arrived, you will receive a message/status update from our staff. You can communicate with our staff as needed by sending a message back.
  • Your items will be checked out to your account, and our staff will deliver them to your vehicle.
