Borrow ice skates from the Library!

Borrow ice skates for free on your adult Louisville Library card. Library cards are free, too! Just bring in proof of your current address, and in 5 minutes, we'll have you ready to skate!

  • Each adult card can check out up to 5 pairs of ice skates at a time.

  • Skates check out for one week, with NO renewals.

  • We can't guarantee that the sizes you need will be available. Sorry, we can't place holds on ice skates.

There is no charge to use the ice skating rink.
