Wichita Public Library offers e-books from OverDrive. Head to Wichita E-Reads to browse the collection, check out an e-book for your mobile device, and start reading today!
We provide various methods to help those who are elderly or disabled and cannot get to the Library still check out books and other materials. Call (316) 261-8500 for more information or assistance.
Is your facility looking to borrow a collection of books for an extended period? We can provide schools, senior resident facilities, child care centers, and summer camps with reading materials for your group.
Not only do our librarians love to talk about books, they make house calls! Whether you want to hear a book review at your book club, a talk about Library services at your civic group, or one of the various discussion topics we have available, we can help.
A full list of discussion topics can be found on the
Speakers Bureau page.
We bring storytime to you! Our Youth Outreach Librarian visits preschools, home child care centers and other youth sites that are unable to transport children to Storytimes at our Libraries.
Invite us to your Parents Night, Book Fair, Wellness Fair or other community gathering. We will staff our booth to help your group learn about the free benefits of the Library system.
We may also be able to issue library cards at your location!
