Kansas Library eCard
This eCard is available to all Kansas residents and can be obtained at any public, school, or academic library in Kansas -- including Wichita State University Libraries. It provides access to digital materials available to all Kansas residents (ebooks/audiobooks, research databases). It is not so much a "card" as it is a login for online materials. Choose one of our two options to get library card:
1. Email us at email@example.com with your full name (including middle initial), email address and date-of-birth.
2. Go to the Circulation Desk at the Ablah Library to get a Kansas Library eCard. Please bring a photo ID.

Digital E-Book and E-Audiobooks
The State Library of Kansas works with Kansas libraries to provide digital library books for all residents, which includes downloadable audiobooks and eBooks. eBooks and eAudiobooks are available from multiple platforms. Some of the platforms are listed here (click the platform name to go to the homepage, where you can search the collection). The rest of the platforms can be viewed on the Kansas Library website.
If you intend to read these eBooks on a computer or tablet, you might need to download Adobe Digital Editions, free software which allows you to access the eBook file for the limited check-out period (see information about the check-out periods below).
