*For new patrons, the director or staff member may ask for the last three (3) months paid bill receipts with a current address displayed on it. (Driver’s licenses will not be accepted.) The patron must then fill out an application card, and a reference should be given of a business person in Marion, or if not known, a reliable person in Marion known to staff. The library shall be free to the use of the residents of the library district, subject always to the rules and regulations as the library board may adopt. The library board may extend the use and privilege of the library to nonresidents of the municipality upon completion of the application process.

What is the card for?
The Kansas Library eCard provides access to digital library services available to all Kansas residents regardless of location. Included in the services offered are Universal Classes. Universal Class offers over 500 online courses in more than 30 areas of study. Since Universal Class offers everything from Microsoft Excel to parenting skills, you’ll be sure to find something of interest to learn. These are actual online courses with an instructor, assignments, and lecture materials. Lecture materials can be both text and video. At the end of the course, students with a passing grade will be issued a certificate. Video audit is available on many courses so you can view materials without taking the full class (no certificate for this option).
How do I get a card?
All libraries in Kansas can make eCards for their patrons. If you do not already have a local library card (for checking out books), the library may ask for proof of residency.
When does my card expire & how do I renew it?
eCards expire every 3 years. If yours has not yet expired, you will be able to login above and view the expiration date. eCards can be renewed at any Kansas library.
Who can get a card?
Any resident of Kansas. There are no age limits but very young Kansans will need a parent or guardian to request a card on their behalf. Some resources may not be useful to those that cannot read or type.
