The Toledo Lucas County Public Library is proud to announce a Fine Free Library Card for active-duty military personnel and military veterans. As a way to further honor and remember those who serve and have served our country, the Library unveiled this card on December 7, Pearl Harbor Day. This idea came from the Library’s own DIG (Diversity Initiatives Group) committee.

Examples of such documents include, but aren’t limited to: Military ID, DD214 form, Certificate of Release, or Discharge from Active Duty.
