Not a Kenton County Resident?
Any cardholder from any library in Kentucky may obtain a library card from KCPL. The Library card must be current (not expired). In addition anyone with a library card from a Greater Cincinnati Library Consortium member library may receive a Kenton County card.
Indiana and Ohio residents whose libraries are not a member of SWON will be required to show us their library card from a SWON member institution in addition to their identification.
For those residing outside of KCPL's servicing area, a KCPL account is available with a one-time $50 fee.
Report lost or stolen cards immediately
The Library assumes that the person presenting a library card is the cardholder, or has the cardholder's permission for use if that card has not been reported lost or stolen. Anything checked out on the card is the responsibility of the cardholder regardless of who checks out the item.
