• All Wichita Public Library locations will be closed Saturday, Dec. 23 through Monday, Dec. 25.

System Maintenance

In order to make updates to improve our online catalog, that portion of our website will be unavailable beginning at 6 a.m. on Monday, October 9. The Library's 24-hour telephone renewal line will also be unavailable; however, no items are due on this date. Access to online and telephone services is expected to be restored by Monday evening.

An Improved Mobile Experience

Tablet and smartphone users: say goodbye to the mobile catalog and hello to the full site! The catalog has been redesigned to be fully accessible on mobile devices.

Enhanced Saved Lists

You can already create lists of books and other materials that are in our catalog. This upgrade improves that and comes with several new features:

  • Select multiple titles to copy, move, or remove from a list
  • Sort lists
  • Choose how many titles to show per page
  • Place up to 10 titles on hold at once from a saved or working list
  • See availability of titles in a saved list, now updated in real time

Narrow Your Search

Just as you can use our e-book site, Wichita E-Reads, to limit searches to titles that are not checked out, now you can do that in our online catalog! Narrow your search by desired branch and availability.
