Library Update

We are excited to announce our re-opening plan! Phase 1 begins this Wednesday, June 10. For a while we will be operating more like a QuikTrip than a library.

We have a plan in place but know that it is a roadmap subject to change direction. Flexibility is key for us all.

Whitewater Area Food Pantry Information

In an effort to stop the spread of COVID-19 and limit contact with others, let us be your local grocery store! This is open to ALL residents of the Whitewater area.

We have created an easy-to-use online shopping list for you to simply click the box next to the items you need. Make sure and put your name and phone number at the top of the list, click submit, and we will call you when your order is ready to be picked up at the library.

All You Need to Know About Ebooks *Updated*

The Kansas State Library offers digital book e-lending.  There are hundreds of available titles for both children and adults. And all you need is a Kansas Library Card!


BookFlix: Animated picture story books matched with a non-fiction book.  Each book pair may also have 2-3 games/puzzles.


3M Cloud Library: Contains larger publishers, so you’ll see bestsellers here.  Mostly fiction, with some popular non-fiction.  This works like your normal library, where if all copies of a book are checked out, you place a hold. 

Enki: Includes self-published books in its catalog of small-medium publishers.  It also has a great variety of both fiction and non-fiction.  Cooking, crafts, and DIY have good selection.  Since the catalog is large (about 40,000 books) and it is fairly new, holds are still uncommon.

Freading:  All books are always available.  Lots of variety in both fiction and non-fiction, there are even graphic novels.  Smaller publishers, but the catalog has over 50,000 books in it and more are added at least once a week.

Total Boox: Total Boox offers a new model for reading, with no holds, no expirations, no limitations, no fines. Download as many ebooks as you want from the catalog of 50,000 ebooks, and keep them as long as you want. You never have to return them, and they never disappear from your device.

Britannica E-STAX: Non-fiction for kids, unlimited access.


Project Gutenberg: Ebooks in the public domain.  Look here if you want a classic.  Read in browser or download to device.

LibriVox: Audio version of books in the public domain, read by volunteer narrators.  Listen in browser or download.

United for Literacy: Picture ebooks with audio, audio can be played in several languages.
