All-Access Library Card

Libraries are for everyone. We know that each person is unique and uses the library differently. With that in mind, the Christian County Library offers different types of library cards for patrons.

If you live, work, own property, or attend school in Christian County you’re eligible for a Christian County All-Access Library Card which includes:

  • Borrowing up to 50 items at a time (books, audiobooks, DVDs) including specialty items such as board games, Nintendo Switch, wifi hotspots, bakeware, and fishing gear
  • Use of public computers, printing, scanning, and faxing services
  • Access to online research databases
  • Downloading content from the Digital Library (music, movies, TV, audiobooks, comics, and ebooks)

To apply for an All-Access Library Card, bring a valid ID and proof of residency to any Christian County Community Branch location. Limit of 2 items may be checked-out with the first use of a new All-Access Library Card and will need to be renewed yearly. If the card is lost, there is a $1.00 charge for a replacement card.
