Having a username makes it easy to access your Library account from home! It allows you to type in a username you choose instead of the number on your library card for many online services. You can set up a unique username right from KRL.org.
Go to KRL.org and click on My Account (You'll find it in the upper right corner; if you are on a smart phone you'll find it at the bottom of the site menu.)
Sign in to your account with the last 7 digits of your card number and your password
Click ‘Change Logon’
Click the box next to ‘Change Username’
Create a username that fits the parameters
Fill in the ‘New Username’ and ‘Verify Username’ fields
That's all there is to it!
Usernames can be used to place holds and check your account; please note that the Library's research tools and OverDrive require you to enter all 14-digits of your Library card number.
