Did you know that anyone with a Muhlenberg County Public Libraries card has easy, free access to a multitude of educational databases?
Kentucky Virtual Library is free for all public library cardholders.
Kentucky Virtual Library, or KYVL, is a collaborative effort between libraries, schools and hospitals across the commonwealth, along with the Kentucky Department of Libraries and Archives and the Council on Postsecondary Education. KYVL includes educational resources for all levels, ranging from learning materials geared toward early readers to scholarly journals helpful for research projects.
Currently, KYVL even includes access to Ancestry.com for those who are interested in tracing their family tree.
KYVL also includes the Kentucky Digital Library. Kentucky Digital Library is a digital archive of newspapers, photographs and more from across the state of Kentucky.
KYVL can be accessed for free from the safety and comfort of your own home. You’ll need a working Internet connection and our library’s login information. To get the current login credentials, call the library at 270-338-4760 and verify that you have a library card.
The login info changes regularly, so you may need to call for updated information if it’s been a while since you accessed KYVL.
For more details about the resources provided as part of KYVL, or for more information about how to get started, check out our recent video tutorial series on YouTube or our Facebook page. We currently have videos focusing on resources for adults in college and professional careers and for elementary-age students, with more tutorials to come later this month.
