How Do I....?


Get a Library Card? You may apply for a library card in person at the Main Library in Findlay, or at the Arlington Branch Library.  You can also apply online HERE for a digital library card.  A photo id and proof of current address are needed.  Under 18 requires a parent's signature.

Reserve a Book or Other Library Material? You may search the library catalog by clicking on the Catalog button and type in the name of what you're looking for.  Beside the title to the right, there is a button that says "Place a Hold".  Click that and follow the online prompts to reserve library materials.  You must have a library card and a PIN number in order to do so.  Requests can also be made by calling the library at 419-422-1712.

See What I Have Checked Out?  From the home page, click on My Account (top right) and enter your library card number and PIN.  You can then click on Checkouts to see a list of items on your account. Don't have a PIN? Stop in to set one.

Donate Items to the Library?  Beginning Thursday, July 23, we will resume accepting book and DVD/CD donations, however, we will not be accepting magazine donations quite yet.  If you have donations, please go to the parking garage located at the rear of the library, and place your items in the cart provided.  Please do not place any magazines in this cart.  If you have a large donation and need help, please call us at 419-422-1712 for assistance.  Thank you for your generosity!
