Get a Library Card
If you meet our qualifications for service, your library card will be delivered within 1-2 weeks.
To fully activate your card you will need to visit a KCLS library with proof of address and photo ID that shows your date of birth. Parents/guardians can assist with proof of address for full activation for applicants under 18. Find a list of the documents you may use to provide proof of address on our downloadable application.
Want your card right away? Apply in person at any KCLS library. In-person applicants can also choose from more card designs, while supplies last.
