Receive email / text notifications

You can get courtesy notices from the library by email or text message. We will notify you about your holds, items that are due or overdue, library charges, and other account activity. You may also choose to download our library app - MyKPL - which allows you to easily renew and reserve items and so much more! 

Important: Please note that if you'd like to use these options for all library cardholders in your family, you'll need to sign each family member up individually.
