Have library cards from multiple libraries? Don't fret! Mid-Continent Public Library has teamed up with Johnson County Library, Olathe Public Library, and Kansas City Public Library so you manage all of your library cards with a single catalog username. Borrow items from each library while also creating shelves, lists, and comments with your single username. Learn more about MCPL's catalog.
I have a Johnson County, Olathe Public Library, or a Kansas City Public Library card and a registered username in one of their catalogs.
If you already have a registered username in the Johnson County and Olathe catalog, or Kansas City Public Library catalog, you can use that same login for your Mid-Continent Public library card. There are two ways to do this:
- Visit this page in the Johnson County catalog or visit this page in the Kansas City Public Library catalog to link your MCPL Access Pass (library card).
- Register here and enter the same email address you use for your JCL/OPL or KCPL account after logging in. The catalog will walk you through the steps.
I have a Johnson County, Olathe Public Library, or a Kansas City Public Library card but have never registered on their catalog.
Simply register your username here, and follow the steps below for 'Linking a Card After You Have Already Registered a Username at MCPL.'
I have an MCPL account and I want to register for accounts at Johnson County and Kansas City Public Library.
