Request to receive an eLibrary card by email.

Request to receive an eLibrary card by email.

Please be aware of the following:
-This option is available to Kern County residents only. If you are not a Kern County resident, you must visit a Kern County Library location to apply for a physical card.
-No actual library card will be issued. Your assigned library card number will be emailed to you.
-The card can ONLY be used to access the eLibrary and databases (NO physical items can be checked out with the card).


-If a card already exists in your name, we will not be able to fulfill your request via this method. You will be required to visit your local library branch to get your card updated.
-If you wish to checkout physical materials, you will need to visit a Kern County Library location, fill out a library card application, and present it with your CA Driver's License / ID or Student ID.

Please use attachment to provide a picture of your CA Driver's License, Photo ID, or Student ID. This is REQUIRED.
