Your items will be checked out on your account and placed in a locker when the library closes for the day. Enter the last 7 digits of your library card number as the code to open the locker.

MCDL participates in nationwide resource sharing of circulating materials, using interlibrary loan services. Loan periods, including renewals, will conform to MCDL’s lending policies.
Members will be charged a $5.00 processing fee for each interlibrary loan request, regardless of whether MCDL is able to obtain the requested item. A member who agrees to pay lender fees up to $15.00 will be charged for any lender fees up to that amount for the requested item. If a member chooses to not pay lender fees, his/her request will be processed only through the free lending string.
MCDL libraries offer tax forms to the public. The library receives various forms and publications from the IRS and the State. Not all forms are available at the same time and not all branches carry the same publications.
Voters registrations forms are available at and can be turned in at all MCDL locations.
You are qualified to register to vote in Ohio if you meet all the following requirements:
- You are a citizen of the United States;

- You will be a resident of Ohio for at least 30 days immediately before the election in which you want to vote;

Any qualified Ohio voter may request and vote an absentee ballot without stating a reason.
The Medina County Board of Elections must receive absentee ballot applications by noon on the Saturday before the election. The Library must receive them on the Wednesday in advance of the election to meet the Board of Elections deadline. Any applications received after that day cannot be guaranteed to make it to the Board of Elections on time.
However, you should submit your request as far in advance of the election as possible to ensure there is sufficient time for the board to mail you a ballot and for you to timely return that ballot.
