Kilgore Memorial Library is a participating library in the Nebraskard program, sponsored by the Nebraska Library Commission, which allows libraries to issue Nebraskard permits to their patrons so that they can borrow materials from other participating libraries in addition to their home library. Nebraska Library Commission has a list of participating libraries.

NebrasKard is the “brand” name given to Nebraska’s reciprocal borrowing program among participating libraries. The program allows borrowers of participating libraries to borrow materials from other participating libraries, subject to the rules and regulations of those libraries.

If you are not a resident of York or York County and your home library is a participant in the Nebraskard program, ask for a Nebraskard permit from your home library. Then, Kilgore Memorial Library will be able to honor your Nebraskard permit and process you into our patron database.
