Create a New Temporary Digital Library Card

This form is for new temporary digital library cards to be used to check out digital items through Kentucky Libraries Unbound (Overdrive/Libby app) or for accessing online resources that the library provides to all patrons. If you already have a regular library card please use the general inquiry form at to request help with your existing account.

Temporary digital library cards may be issued on a short-term basis in emergency scenarios. They may be discontinued at any time by the library and may cease functioning without notice. After regular library services resume, temporary digital library cards will need to be converted to regular full privilege cards in either of our locations. This temporary digital card does not entitle the user to any privileges within the physical library building. This card is only valid for accessing online/digital resources.
