Getting a Library Card

A library card may be issued free to any resident of Ohio, upon presentation of a valid driver’s license or other form of I.D. with a current mailing address. Out of State residents, not working or attending school in St. Clairsville will be charged a fee of $5.00 for a library card. This fee is not refundable and is charged upon renewal.

Adults, patrons age 18 and over, must present valid photo identification, as well as a current article of mail, such as a utility bill, bank mailing, or other business mail as proof of address.

A patron between ages 5-17 years old may register for a library card, but must have the signature of his or her parent or guardian on the registration form, and the parent or guardian must present the required identification as outlined above; the signature will satisfy the requirement for identification for the patron under age 18. No cards will be issued for patrons under the age of 5 years old. Restricted services may be requested by the parent or guardian on the juvenile’s card application. The parent or guardian is responsible for any charges incurred on this card.

Temporary residents must provide both permanent and temporary or school addresses. Out-of-state students attending an institution of higher learning in Ohio must provide their permanent and their college addresses, as well as a student ID and current piece of mail.

Items on this card incur fines and the checkout time is based upon the item type. All materials checked out on the card are the responsibility of the cardholder. A printout of items will be given after every check out session or available upon request.
