Library Cards

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Massillon Public Library will issue library cards to eligible patrons who apply by phone. Patrons who are issued a library card during this time will be considered “Limited Patrons” and will be permitted to check out only two items at a time. When the Massillon Public Library is able to open fully, patrons who were issued a library card during this period MUST come into the library and complete the normal paper library card application, provide a current photo ID, and verification of address as per our usual policy in order to continue using the library card. Library materials that will be available for checkout with this limited card are books, DVDs, CDs, audiobooks, and magazines.

Your library card is your ticket to a world of information. With it you may borrow 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.

Your library card also provides access to a number of research databases and allows you to borrow ebooks and audio books from our online digital collections.

For more information and to apply for a library card, please contact Cindy Rudy, Circulation Services Manager, at 330-832-9831 ext. 332.
