Logging in to the Ohio Digital Library

In order to access digital downloads from the Ohio Digital Library you need two things:

A current, valid library card from an Athens County Public Library

If your library card has expired or is restricted you will not be able to log in. Please contact your local library for help.

A password to our online library catalog

If you already use our online library catalog to place holds or check your account, you already have the password you need. If not, bring your library card to your local library and ask that one be set up for you. Enter your password when asked for PIN.

Here comes the tricky part

Normally when you log in to our online catalog you type your library card number as it appears on your card. The digital downloads login requires that your library card be entered in a slightly different format. Use this form to get the right number for logging in:
