Which Situation Applies to You?

I Have a Johnson County or Olathe Public Library Card and a Registered Username in One of their Catalogs

If you already have a registered username in the Johnson County or Olathe catalogs, you can use that same login for your KCPL and Mid-Continent library cards. There are two ways to do this:

  1. Visit this page in the Johnson County catalog to link your Kansas City card.
  2. Or

  3. Register here and enter the same email address you use for your JCL/OPL account after logging in. The catalog will walk you through the steps.
