Get a library card

KDL's digital library is available 24/7 from the comfort of your home or wherever you are. If you don't have a KDL card, you can apply for an online-only card that will grant you 90 days of access to our digital collection and research databases. As a requirement to apply, you need to live in the KDL service area. Normally you need to be at least 18 years to get this online-only card, but we are temporarily suspending this requirement.
