Kent Free Library cards are available to anyone who lives, owns property, works or goes to school in Ohio. Only one card is required for access to all member libraries of the Portage Library Consortium.
The parent or legal guardian of a child under 18 years of age can apply for a juvenile card by visiting any Information Desk with a current library card in the Portage Library Consortium or a valid form of identification.
A Kent Free Library card will work at any public library in Portage County, including the Reed Memorial Library in Ravenna and any branch of the Portage County District Library. Together, the three library systems make up the Portage Library Consortium.
Your library card should be treated with the same care as a credit card. If it is lost or stolen, please contact the library immediately so no one is able to check out materials for which you will be responsible.
Click My Account on the library’s catalog page and enter your library card number and PIN, which is set to the last 4 digits of the telephone number on your account. If you have difficulty please contact the library.
Staff is not authorized to release information to anyone other than the cardholder. Adult patrons may choose to allow others to have access to their records, or the records of their minor children. A consent form must be on file at the Kent Free library to allow access to others. The library is required and committed to protecting the privacy of card holders.
