Payment can be made with a credit or debit card through the eGovernment service provider, Kansas.gov.

The Kansas State Library offers digital book e-lending. There are hundreds of available titles for both children and adults. And all you need is a Kansas Library Card!
BookFlix: Animated picture story books matched with a non-fiction book. Each book pair may also have 2-3 games/puzzles.
3M Cloud Library: Contains larger publishers, so you’ll see bestsellers here. Mostly fiction, with some popular non-fiction. This works like your normal library, where if all copies of a book are checked out, you place a hold.
Enki: Includes self-published books in its catalog of small-medium publishers. It also has a great variety of both fiction and non-fiction. Cooking, crafts, and DIY have good selection. Since the catalog is large (about 40,000 books) and it is fairly new, holds are still uncommon.
Freading: All books are always available. Lots of variety in both fiction and non-fiction, there are even graphic novels. Smaller publishers, but the catalog has over 50,000 books in it and more are added at least once a week.
Total Boox: Total Boox offers a new model for reading, with no holds, no expirations, no limitations, no fines. Download as many ebooks as you want from the catalog of 50,000 ebooks, and keep them as long as you want. You never have to return them, and they never disappear from your device.
Britannica E-STAX: Non-fiction for kids, unlimited access.
