A woman's hand holds six library cards. They are spread out to show the different design options for a library card here at the Toledo Lucas County Public Library.

IT’S EASY TO GET A LIBRARY CARD!

A physical Library card gives you access to all the Library’s physical and digital materials. Go to any location to apply. You will need:

  • Proof of address (such as driver’s license, utility statement or another bill)
  • A picture ID (the ID does not need to match your current address)

We will process your application and you will leave with your new card!

If you don’t have the proof of address and photo ID, or you are not an Ohio resident, call us at 419.259.5200 for other options.

Getting Library cards for all students is a top Toledo Lucas County Public Library goal! It’s easy for your school to participate:
  • Send an Excel spreadsheet with each student’s name, address, school ID number, and birth date to susan.roudebush@toledolibrary.org
  • We will send you an email to confirm that the accounts have been created and directions about creating a PIN.
  • Students can then access all of the Library’s digital resources through our website.
  • Students can visit any  location to pick up a free physical Library card using their school ID number. This will allow them to check out physical materials.
  • Some of your students will already have cards, and they can continue to use those cards instead of, or in addition to, these new cards. If they don’t remember their Library card number, they or their parents can call any location for help.
Call 419.259.5200 with any questions or to get further help.
