Owl Catalog


Welcome to the Johnson City Public Library catalog. This looks a little different from the entire OWL catalog, but it works exactly the same—you still manage your account here, including placing holds, renewing items, making lists, and adjusting your checkout history preference.

To log into your account, enter your library card number as your username and your last name as your password.

After searching for an item, you need to click on an item to see whether it is available for checkout and where in the library it is located.

You can always return to this catalog home page by clicking the green house icon located next to the search options.

Don’t have a library card?

If you live or work in Northeast Tennessee, you may apply for a free library card that will grant you access to all our materials and services. Children 3 to 15 can apply with a parent or legal guardian, and Non-residents may also apply for a card with an added fee.

To get your library card, bring 2 items to the Johnson City Public Library:

Current photo identification that shows your birth date & an additional form of address verification that shows your name, address, and a date within the past 90 days–such as a utility bill. Click Here To Register For A Library Card
