Non-University Borrower Guidelines

Anyone 18 year of age or older who resides within the EKU Service Region may borrow materials from the EKU Libraries.

An EKU Library card will permit you to check out up to five books, for a circulation period of two weeks. If you need the books longer, they can be renewed in person, or by phone (859) 622-1790, or on our online catalog.

Please be aware that some departments of EKU Libraries may have restrictions on individual items or collections which may limit their use.

Enjoy the library's no fine policy, but remember, you will receive a bill for replacement costs if books are not returned.

Remember to bring your EKU Library card with you each time you come to the Libraries. Your use of the libraries, and your ability to borrow items may be severely restricted without it. 

Should your EKU Library card become lost or stolen, it is important that you notify the EKU Libraries as quickly as possible. If your card is used without your knowledge, you will still be held responsible for items borrowed, lost, or damaged.

If you have any questions with your library account, or the services offered by EKU Libraries, please call (859) 622-1790 for more information.
