Online Registration

No Library Card? No Problem! Sign up online for a Digital Library Card and you will be emailed a bar code which can be used immediately. A physical card will later be sent by U.S. Mail.


Digital Card:

You are applying for a Digital library card. A Digital library card does not allow you to check out books, music or movies. A Digital library card gives you access to all databases, e-books, e-learning, mobile printing, plus access to public computers at libraries throughout Mahoning County. If you have applied for a Digital card during normal business hours, you can expect to receive your barcode by e-mail shortly after submitting the application. Applications received when the library is closed will be processed on the next business day. Your library card with your permanent barcode will be mailed to you within 3 business days.

The barcode and PIN you receive when registering for a Digital library card is a temporary number and PIN. Placing requests for digital material or creating a digital account with the temporary barcode and PIN may cause problems or delays in receiving your requests. Use your permanent barcode to create a PIN or digital account.

Visit any of our 15 libraries to present photo id and verification of current address to upgrade your Digital library card to a full service library card.
