History of the Kansas Library eCard
The first Kansas Library Cards came into use in 2002 as a way for Kansas residents to access research databases and later our first downloadable ebooks & audiobooks services. The original cards were orange, and since they were in use for years many people around the state still have them.

The Kansas Library Card has often been confused with other library cards, so in 2013 we decided to try naming it the Kansas Library eCard. Since the card is only a login for digital materials, we hoped calling it the eCard would reinforce that. When a library creates a new eCard number, they may enter your email address so your card information will be sent to you. Paper cards are still available if you want one.
