What Can I Do with My Library Card?

Your library card provides you with free access to an array of services and resources.

Find out about some of the many ways you can use your library card.

Take Home Books

When one thinks of libraries, books are typically the first thing that comes to mind. However, libraries are much more than a building that houses books. We are a safe community space that champions free access to information. That being said, books will always be the cornerstone of any library system. Your library card grants you access to our collection of books and magazines from any of our library branches.

If you don’t see an item in our collection that you’d like to check out, let us know and we’ll do our best to find a copy for you. You can use your library account to submit an Item Request form for items you’d like to see the library purchase or borrow from libraries outside of Campbell County.

Check Out Audio and Visual Materials

Need to catch up on a season of your favorite TV show? How about an audiobook to listen to on your next road trip? Check out everything from blockbuster award-winning movies to indie cult classics with your library card. We have hundreds of TV show DVD collections for you to choose from as well. Plus, each branch is home to a wide array of audiobooks and music CDs to fit every taste.

Access the Digital Collection

In addition to our collection of books and magazines, your library card also provides instant access to thousands of items through our digital collection. All you need is your library card number and PIN number to check out books, magazines and audiobooks through Kentucky Libraries Unbound.

Free Online Services and Resources

With your library card, you’re welcome to access free online resources at any time. You can find everything from genealogy databases to test prep and employment resources. Our online databases are also a great resource for homework help. Your library card grants you access to scholarly journals and other research-based sites.

Request Book Care Packages

Book Care Packages allow library patrons of all ages to request up to 10 books and audio materials. Once you fill out a form identifying your preferences, the library staff will then place a selection of items on hold for you to pick up at the branch of your choice. In addition to your own personal reading, book care packages are great for in-home story times and homework projects.

Computer and Internet Access

Do you need to type up a paper for a class? Are you looking for somewhere to apply online for a new job opportunity? Or perhaps you want to access social media to catch up with friends? Whatever your online needs are, the library is here to help. You can access computers at all of our library branches with your library card and PIN number. All of our library branches also provide free wifi for you to use while in the building.
