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. Currently, the Library offers Fine Free Cards to seniors (age 60 and over), those with disabilities (Ability Card) and to children via the Kids/eAccess Card To obtain a Fine Free Library Card, documentation will be required showing a status of active duty, veteran, or retired military. Examples of such documents include, but aren’t limited to: Military ID, DD214 form, Certificate of Release, or Discharge from Active Duty.
