Get a Library Card or PIN

Library cards are available free of charge to Ohio residents at all library locations.

You may sign up for a full-service library card at all library locations, or download an application, fill in and print it out, then bring it to any library location.

You may sign up for an eCard here. The eCard gives you access to all of MRCPL's digital resources.

For a Full-Service Card, You Will Need:
* Two pieces of Identification with your name - one ID must have your current address.
* If you are under the age of 18, you must be accompanied by your parent or
legal guardian. A parent or legal guardian must sign for a child’s library card.
* No Money - your first library card is free! (The cost to replace a card is $1.)

• For the first two weeks, checkout will be limited to five (5) items at a time. Two of those items may be audio-visual materials -CDs, DVDs, videotapes, etc.
• If you do not have ID with a current address, the Library will send a postcard to you. You may bring that postcard back in with you to apply for your card.

Report lost or stolen cards to the Library immediately; you are responsible for its use or misuse. This includes overdue fines, fees for lost or damaged materials and misuse of Internet privileges.

PIN (Personal Identification Number)
You must have a PIN in order to use library computers, view your library card information, place holds or renew items online. If you do not have a PIN, you may get one in person or by calling any of our locations. You will need your library card to get a PIN by any method.

E-Mail  & Text Message Notification
You can now receive notification of holds/reserves and overdue items via e-mail and/or text message. You'll need to have your phone number (in a special format) in the email address field of your record. If your account lists an email address or phone number  (in text message format), we will use it to notify you. Please note - standard text messaging rates will apply, according to your cell phone plan.

Please make sure that your email address/phone number is current in your account information.
