Student Access as KANOPY through East Baton Rouge Parish Library

There are two choices for cards that will access KANOPY—regular membership and computer use. If a student wants to apply for a regular membership card, they may do so by presenting their photo id along with proof of address at any of our fourteen locations. If they are not living in East Baton Rouge Parish, they may also show their student id. For online only students who will not be traveling to Baton Rouge, they may apply over the phone for a computer use card. These students need to call Main Circulation at 225-231-3740. They will need to provide their name, date of birth, and phone number. We will provide the student with a 14 digit library card number at that time.
