Library Card Registration Policy

The Stow-Munroe Falls Public Library is a member of the CLEVNET Library Consortium. Library cards are interchangeable among other libraries in the CLEVNET Library Consortium. Patrons 16 years of age and older must present a picture ID with a current address. If the ID does not have the current address posted, the patron must provide one of the following:

  1. personal check
  2. lease
  3. piece of mail forwarded by the post office (with the current address on it or anything with the patron’s name and address in an official manner)

If a patron is unable to produce the required ID, the patron will be mailed a postcard. The patron will receive a library card when the postcard is returned to the library as proof of address.

Patrons under 16 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian and have the signature of a parent or legal guardian to obtain a card.

A Digital Library Card is available for Ohio residents. 

What is a Digital Library Card?

The Digital Library Card is a virtual library card that will give you access to all of the library’s digital resources:

  • • eBooks
  • • eAudiobooks
  • • digital magazines
  • • digital movies
  • • downloadable & streaming music
  • • digital TV shows
  • • online classes
  • • research tools & databases

What can’t I do with my Digital Library Card?

  • • check out books, audiobooks, DVDs, or other physical items at the library
  • • place holds on these items in our catalog
  • • access public computers at the library

To get a Digital Library Card you must:

  • • be a permanent resident in Ohio
  • • be 16 years of age
  • • not have a Full-Service Library Card with Stow-Munroe Falls Public Library
  • You may only have one type of a library card with Stow-Munroe Falls Public Library:
    • ♦ a Full-Service Library Card that allows access to everything the library owns, or
    • ♦ a Digital Library Card that provides you with full access to all of our digital resources.
  • If you already have a Full-Service Library Card, you will not be able to register for a Digital Library Card. However, you may upgrade your Digital Library Card to a Full-Service Library Card at the front Checkout Desk during open hours.
  • Please Note: If you have lost your physical library card, you will need to contact the library about a replacement.

Register for a Digital Library Card here.

You must provide a valid email address. This is where your new Digital Library Card number and PIN will be sent. Since you will not have a physical card, you should save the email, or write down your Digital Library Card and PIN number in a safe place.

Your new Digital Library Card will be good for 2 years. At that time, you may renew it by contacting the library or you may upgrade to a Full-Service Library Card.
