There may be instances when you need to use WCDPL, but can't get into the library or the library is closed. The library's digital resources could help you out, but you don't have a permanent library card. You can self-register for a temporary library which will allow you to immediately borrow eBooks, magazines, and downloadable audiobooks, and use the library's online research tools.
Here's how to self-register:
- Use this link to register for a temporary library card account.
- From the pull down menu, be sure to select Wood County District Public Library from the list of libraries
- Complete and submit the registration form in the pop-up window
- Make a note of your user id information and keep it where you can find it
Your temporary card will work with all digital resources for 60 days and will allow you to place1 hold request in the online catalog. When you are able, stop by the library and replace your temporary card with a permanent library card.
NOTE: If your temporary card expires before you obtain a permanent card, WCDPL will not be able to recover hold requests or checked-out items in the WCDPL OverDrive, Ohio Digital Library, and hoopla.
