Your Gateway to Knowledge

The mission of the Akron Public Library is to provide open access to a full range of timely resources in various media; to meet the needs and interests of the entire community in the areas of education, culture, recreation and information; and to provide programs, facilities and services to support these needs in coordination with other local and regional organizations.

You must fill out a form with name, address, email and all phone numbers of the individual/family wishing to have a card. The complete registration policy is on the library’s website.
