King County Library System’s new eCard is available

Provides online access opportunity for users

A new online access opportunity for King County Library patrons is now available.

The King County Library System is unveiling a new eCard for residents in the KCLS service area who may not yet have a library card and would like online access to KCLS resources.

With the new eCard, patrons have immediate access to KCLS’ online collection, which includes streaming music and films, eBooks, online magazines, research databases, exam-preparation tools, online classes and more.

First-time patrons can apply online for the eCard or an all-access card. The all-access card gives patrons the ability to check out not only KCLS’ online offerings, but its complete collection of nearly four million physical items, including print books, print magazines, DVDs, CDs, and audiobooks.

Anyone who has a residential address or who owns property in King County can get an eCard, except for Seattle, Hunts Point or Yarrow Point. Hunts Point and Yarrow Point residents have not opted in to receive library service from KCLS. Seattle residents qualify for an all-access card under a reciprocal agreement.

The application takes only minutes to complete. Each applicant should provide his or her full name, a phone number, date of birth, email address, residential address and mailing address (if different from residential address).

For more information, visit kcls.org.
