Wichita Public Library Unveils E-Book Site

12/5/2011
Contact: Jennifer Heinicke, Special Projects Librarian |

Best-selling and Classic Titles for All Ages Available 24/7

Beginning today, customers may borrow e-books from the Wichita Public Library. The Wichita Public Library’s service, provided by OverDrive, debuts just as the State Library of Kansas’ audiobook and e-book service from that same company ceases operation.

“We are pleased to continue offering e-books to our customers with no gap in service,” said Director of Libraries Cynthia Berner Harris. “We’re especially thrilled to be able to serve customers using all major e-readers, smartphones and computers.”

Library card holders can check out and download digital media anytime, anywhere by visiting http://www.wichita.lib.ks.us/. Books may be enjoyed immediately or transferred to devices such as the Amazon Kindle, Apple iPad®, Apple iPhone®, Barnes & Noble NOOK™, Kobo eReader, Sony Reader, LG Optimus, Motorola Droid™, and RIM BlackBerry® Curve™.

While audiobooks are not available directly from the Wichita Public Library’s e-book site, they may be downloaded through the Kansas EZ Library (State Library of Kansas) with a free Kansas Library Card. Kansas Library Cards are available at any Wichita Public Library location.

Visit the Wichita Public Library at www.wichita.lib.ks.us for details about all downloadable books.
