Get a Library Card

Your Library card is your ticket to the wide world of stories, learning, entertainment, and of course, reading.

*Register now for immediate access to:

  • A vast eLibrary including eBooks, streaming music, and eAudiobooks
  • Amazing online learning resources 
  • Rich research databases

After registering, you will receive a Library card number and can start placing holds and visit the eLibrary. 

*Residents of Clay, Platte, and Jackson County, Missouri, are eligible to apply online for a Library card. The Library has agreements with neighboring libraries that might allow you to get a Library card. To see if you are eligible, see our FAQs.

This form is to register for new cards only. If you need to replace your Library card, please visit one of our branches, and Library staff will happily assist. Kids younger than 13 will need the help of a parent or legal guardian to register.
