Digital Library Card

From e-books and audiobooks, to movies, music and learning resources, explore the wide range of library resources you can access from the comfort of your own living room with a digital library card.

What is a Digital Library Card?

An digital library card allows you to access many of our online resources. You can borrow e-books and audiobooks, read popular magazines and newspapers, stream movies and music, learn a new skill, and much more!

Who can get a Digital Library Card?

You are eligible for a digital library card if you:

(1) Live within the Region of Waterloo
(2) Do not yet have a Kitchener Public Library card

If you already have a library card with us, you need not apply - your existing card gives you access to our full range of digital services!


A digital library card is a temporary barcode designed to provide access to a selection of the library's online products and services. It cannot be used to borrow physical materials from the library.

During the library closure, these cards are available to residents of Waterloo Region who do not already have a Kitchener Public Library card. Once the library has re-opened, digital card holders will be able to visit any of our locations to upgrade to a full library card.
