Kinsman Free Public Library is proud to introduce the Virtual Library Card!
What is a Virtual Library Card?
A Virtual Library Card allows you to borrow items from KFPL's e-media collection!
Here is what you can access with your Virtual Library Card:
- Hoopla - Movies, television shows, music and audiobooks.
- CLEVNET eMedia = Borrow digital books, videos, and music.
- Databases - Access databases at home.
- TumbleBooks for Kids- Read and listen to children's books online.
How do I get a Virtual Card?
To apply for a Virtual Library Card, simply fill out the online application. If approved, you will receive your Library Card Number/User ID and Pin Number within 2 business days. You do not need to visit the Library in-person to get a Virtual Card.
Who can get a Virtual Card?
KFPL's Virtual Card is available to any Ohio resident who doesn't already have an existing KFPL or CLEVNET Library Card.
I already have a KFPL Library Card, do I also need to get a Virtual Card?
No. If you already have an existing KFPL or CLEVNET Library Card, you will be ineligible to receive a Virtual Card. Your traditional KFPL Library Card (or any CLEVNET Library Card) already gives you access to the Library's e-media, so a Virtual Card is not necessary. The Virtual Card is designed to allow those who don't have a traditional card to access the Library's digital e-media collection.
How much does a Virtual Card cost?
The KFPL Virtual Library Card is FREE!
Can I borrow physical books from the Library with my Virtual Card?
No. You may only borrow items from the Library's e-media and digital collections with your Virtual Card. If you wish to check-out physical materials within the library, you must visit the Kinsman Free Public Library with a valid ID and proof of current address and complete a library card application.
