Kansas Library Card
Digital Library Card Permission
As we become a more digital friendly library, we have to re-think how our students will access books. Since our school libraries do not yet have digital books, we will need to use the resources available to us digital. There are thousands of free books and resources provided by the Wichita Public Library (WPL) and Kansas State Library.
In order for students to use these resources, they need a library card for each and then a parent/guardian permission is required. The KS library card and the WPL e-card give users access to ALL library materials in the digital collection. It is the responsibility of the parents/guardian, not the school, to monitor their student’s library account(s) and/or the books their student has checked out.
Complete the Library card consent form, giving permission for your student to have a card created for them. Cards will not be created for students without permission from a parent/guardian. Once permission is granted, students will need to request a card be made for them (contact Mrs. Aberg, library teacher).
