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.
Due to Covid-19, all library card requests must be made online by completing the form below.
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!
