Fortunately, getting a Kansas City Public Library card – or managing your current account – has never been easier.
We recently introduced a new online library card portal that makes it more convenient for new patrons to connect instantly with our collections and services. Plus we’ve introduced some fresh time-saving features for current cardholders.
In just a few steps, you can apply for a card online and get instant access to resources and services that will help you to discover, learn, and grow. If you're already a library cardholder, you now have a more convenient way to manage your card online.
