It's easy to get a library card. Adults must present proper identification, and children under eighteen years of age must have a parent or legal guardian sign the library card application. Library Staff will be happy to assist you with this procedure the next time you visit the Library.
There is no charge for your first library card. If you should lose your card and need a replacement, there is a 50 cent replacement card fee. If your lost card had outstanding fines still on record, these fines will have to be paid before a new card can be issued.
Your library card is your ticket to a world of information. With it you may check out books, magazines, music, videos, DVDs and books on CD from any department or branch of the Massillon Public Library system. One of the tenets of the Library's Mission Statement is freedom of information. Therefore, the Library does not place any age restrictions on what can be borrowed with a library card. The Library encourages families to use the collection together and determine their own rules and guidelines for the information the family selects.
A card from the Massillon Public Library may also be used at the Stark County District Library and the Louisville Public Library. The materials in these libraries' collections are searchable through the online catalog. If you need materials from another library, you can utilize our Interlibrary Loan services to have those materials delivered to a library near you.
If you have any questions about your library card, please contact your nearest Library branch and let us help you!
