You must live in Shelby County, Kentucky, or if you are a member of the following libraries, you may also obtain a card:
If you are a resident of a county not listed above and wish to become a member of SCPL, there is a $25.00 one-time membership fee.
We encourage parents to bring their kids to the library, and we want your child to have their own library card! There’s no age requirement to obtain a library card, but children 16 years or younger must have a parent or guardian agree to be the responsible party for the materials borrowed.
The below application is still available for use, but to receive your library card with less turnaround, we encourage you to visit the library in person. You can view our hours and procedures online.
Because we are required to see proof of address, please show your ID or a piece of mail that matches your ID to staff next time you’re at the library so we can verify your information.
We can make you a new one! Just visit the main desk on the third floor with your picture ID. Replacement library cards cost $2.50.
Stop by the front desk at the library to get your library card, and in a few minutes you’ll have access to thousands of books, computers, over 20 online resources, and more!
