Need a Library Card? Now’s the Time to Sign Up!

heidi-show-cardThe Public Library of Youngstown and Mahoning County began 135 years ago – on October 27, 1880. The Library has a long and rich history. And 135 years’ worth of Library Cards issued!

“Our goal for this anniversary year is to issue even more Library Cards – and to inspire Library Cardholders who may not be using that card to explore what we have to offer and use their Library Card more often,” says Library Executive Director Heidi M. Daniel.

Your Library Card opens up a world of knowledge and possibilities. It can connect you to the information you need and want to inspire you and enrich your life!

If you do not have a Library card, what better time to sign up? Don’t hesitate. It’s as easy as stopping in any of the 15 public libraries in Mahoning County or going to the Library’s website – – and signing up online. A Library Card is free for Ohio residents.

“We want to make people aware of the many programs and services available to them by just showing their Library Card at any of the 15 public libraries in Mahoning County or using it online,” said Janet Loew, Communications/Public Relations Director. “A new campaign – Show Me Your Card – gives our cardholders an opportunity to show how much they love their library! Additionally, we hope those who don’t have cards will become aware of what they are missing by not using their local library. We have something for everyone. Don’t have a card? There’s an easy fix – sign up in one of our libraries or online today.”

There are library cards for every need. Along with our full-service Library Card, the Library offers several fine-free options for specific age groups. The fine-free Read Card is for children and Simply Teen card is for teens. There are benefits to Senior Status for those 65 and up. The Library has a digital card for customers who only want to use online services or in-library computers. (To learn more:
