Patrons must have a library card to check out material and may apply for a card at any of the library’s locations. Patrons of the Wayne County Public Library can use their library card at 44 libraries in Northeast Ohio through CLEVNET, a group of libraries linked by an automation system owned and operated by the Cleveland Public Library. (Cards obtained from any of the CLEVNET libraries will also work at all other libraries in the CLEVNET system, including WCPL.)
You may fill out an application for a new library card at any of our library locations, or preregister online and have a card waiting for you at your selected library location. Cards must be picked up in person with proof of identification.
Applicants 18 years of age or older and the parent or legal guardian signing for a minor’s library card must present identification with a current mailing address such as a driver’s license, state ID or checkbook when picking up the Library card at the branch selected below.
Cards are available for individuals of all ages. A parent or legal guardian must present identification and sign a library card application for any minor child. The child must accompany the adult at the time the application is made. The signer is responsible for all materials borrowed on the child’s card.
As a library card holder:I agree to observe all rules established by the library and will be responsible for all materials borrowed on this card. I also agree to pay fines or other charges imposed for the late return, mutilation, or loss of library materials borrowed on this card. I will update my name, address, and telephone number whenever they change.
For a Parent or Guardian of a Minor:I assume financial responsibility for materials borrowed by my child on this card. I understand that this card enables my child, under age 18, to borrow books, compact discs, audio cassettes, and magazines from the library without restrictions. I realize that the responsibility for guiding the child in selection and use of the materials belongs to me and is not the responsibility of the Wayne County Public Library.
