Borrowing

Library Cards:  Any Ohio resident with required proof of address may obtain a library card at no charge; children under the age of 18 must have a parent or legal guardian's signature.  The library will charge a nominal fee for the replacement of the card.

Books, Magazines, Audiobooks, DVDs and CDs:  You can borrow up to a total of 50 items. Books, magazines, audiobooks, literacy kits, and music CDs check out for 28 days. DVDs check out for 7 days. Any item will renew for 4 additional borrowing periods unless there are reserve requests for the item. Items may be renewed at the Library, by telephone or online.

Overdue fines for videos are $.50 per business day.  Dimes, quarters, nickels, dollars, and pennies are welcome for overdue books, magazines, audios, & CDs.

If what you're looking for isn't available at the moment, you may place up to 25 reserve requests. We will notify you when the items become available for you to pick up. 

For our patrons' convenience when the library is closed, the Mechanicsburg Public Library provides a 24-hour Book Drop for all library items.

Digital audiobooks, eBooks, magazines, music and videos are available to download with your library card and a pin number at the Ohio Digital Library from the link on our website and at www.ohioebooks.org.
