Raise your hand if you love eMedia? What’s not to love? It’s easy. It’s convenient. It’s literally right at your fingertips.
As part of the Library’s on-going goal of making it easier than ever to access our materials and services, we recently launched a new eMedia library card that customers can sign-up for and receive entirely online!
What’s the difference between our eMedia card and traditional library card?
Ohio residents who complete and qualify for a Toledo Lucas County Public Library (TLCPL) card using our online form will receive an eMedia card via email within 7 days.
With your TLCPL eMedia card, you will have full access to all of our online databases, eBooks, eAudiobooks, eMagazines, music, and movies!
What if I decide I’d like to borrow a print book, DVD, or other type of physical item?
Stop into one of our 20 locations, show us your picture ID with current address and sign a borrower’s agreement! We will replace your eMedia card with a full library card and you’ll be able to check-out materials that day.
Children that want to borrow physical materials will also need to come to one of our buildings and can get a Kids Card or will need to have their parents with them to get a full feature juvenile account.
