How to Use the Library (Beyond Books!)

If you ask us, libraries are magical places that center community and champion resources.

Beyond checking out books, DVDs and CDswhich you should do!here are other resources you can access through your library.

Meeting & Study Rooms

If you need a quiet place to study or meet, the library has your back. Meeting, small conference and study rooms may be reserved by the public based on availability.

While the library’s meeting rooms are intended primarily for library-sponsored programs, they may be used by outside organizations when not in use.

Public Wi-Fi & Computers

Whether you need to update your resume, work on a project or do a research deep dive, all four branches provide free access to computers and Wi-Fi. To use the computers, all you need is a library card and PIN number.

Don’t have a library card? You can also get a guest pass using a valid photo ID. If all of the computers are in use, you can reserve a spot at the Information Services Desk or Reservation Station.

All adult computers have Microsoft Office and web browsers.

If you have your own smart device, feel free to bring it to any branch and connect to our Wi-Fi!

Patrons can also print materials at any branch for a small fee: $0.20 for black and white and $0.40 for color.


Other Library Collections!

Have a library card with Campbell County Public Library? Awesome! That means you can also get a library card with any system in Greater Cincinnati, including Kenton County Public Library, Boone County Public Library and the Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County.

Pro tip: This is especially great news for Libby users! Sign in on the app with each system’s card and place holds to your heart’s content.


Our Digital Collection

Speaking of Libby, a library card gives you full access to our digital collection. Offered through Kentucky Libraries Unbound, Libby allows patrons to borrow e-books, audiobooks, digital magazines and videos instantly to computers, smartphones, e-readers or tablets.

All patrons need to get set up is the Libby app and library card. If you don’t have an e-reader, that’s not a problem. Libby offers a built-in e-book reader and audiobook player, which means you can take the library with you wherever you go! E-books can also be sent to your Kindle automatically.

You can also access e-materials with a digital patron card.
