Read An Ebook During This Time Of Social Distancing

Fort Scott Public Library


Fort Scott Public Library Director Lisa Walther is working to get access to reading books from your cellphone or computer during this time of social distancing.

You can sign up for a library card.

“If you already have an account with us and need assistance getting ebooks, please email me and I will try to troubleshoot for you, Walther said. “If you DO NOT have an account with us, go to our catalog at and create an account. I will adjust that account so you will be able to check out from our electronic resources. If you have a library card, you already have access. Our intent is to provide access to those of you who don’t have an account.

This is for Bourbon County residents only, she said.

The following is a press release sent by Walther.


“If you don’t have an account/card with us, we now have a way for you to access our online ebook resources. Go to and create an account. Be sure you make note of your password and that your email is correct. I recommend that you sign in and change your password.

If you want access on the day that you create your account, email me at either [email protected] or [email protected] Please include your full name in your email. If you wait, I will run a report every morning and convert accounts at that time.

“I will edit your account so that you have access to our digital resources hoopladigital and sunflowerelibrary Then I will send you an email with your digital account number and your username. If you have a particular username that you prefer, please let me know by email. The system automatically assigns a name: firstname.lastname. but I can change that if you wish.

See our website: for links and more information. Since this is an experiment, it’s likely we’ll add updates as questions and problems arise.

At this time, we are limiting our digital accounts to Bourbon County residents.

If you already have a card with us, please don’t create a new account. Email me with your question, and I’ll try to resolve it. Please include your name and card number in your email.

If you are interested in the Kansas Library eCard, I can set you up. Email me with your name, including middle initial, birthdate, and verify that you live in Kansas.”
