E-cards available for library's digital branch

Using features available in Kitsap Regional Library’s new system software, the library has begun offering “e-Cards” for people who wish to access only the online collection of downloadable e-books, audiobooks, music and research databases.

Kitsap residents who have no library card and do not wish to borrow items from KRL’s physical collection can sign up online to get the new card. Those who apply for the card using the online application form will be issued an e-card bar code that gives them access to KRL’s downloadable collection and searchable databases.

Using the e-card, library members can grab a book for their Kindle, download album tracks from Freegal and use resources like Brainfuse, KRL’s online homework help, Live Mocha and Mango language learning programs, or the resume and test preparation support offered by Job and Career Accelerator.

Anyone who already has a library card can use its bar code to access these online collections.

Anyone who receives an e-card on the KRL website has the choice of later coming into a branch library with photo ID and proof of address to upgrade to a full library card and the borrowing privileges it adds — access to all of the books, CDs and DVDs in the KRL collection of more than 525,000 items.

For more information, call digital branch manager Sharon Grant, 360-475-9036.
