How to Join

The forms on this page are for libraries to join Kansas Library Express as NEW members.  Joining the Kansas Library Express requires participation in statewide interlibrary lending.  New members can find a KIC Council agreement and Application to join KICNET here. If you have questions about this process, contact Rhonda Machlan at the State Library by email rhonda.machlan@ks.gov or phone 785-296-3296.

This requirement also applies to libraries receiving service indirectly through another library.

Indirect service is offered to low volume libraries at no charge.  A library with direct service will need to agree to accept delivery for the library requesting indirect service.  Any cost-sharing arrangements are local agreements.  See Indirect Service Agreement and then contact the Kansas Library Express at courier@nekls.org or call 785-838-4090.

 

Libraries requesting service from Kansas Library Express for the first time should submit the following:

Membership and contact information is renewed and updated annually.  Renewing members will be sent participation agreements that reflect their level of service and the support provided by their regional library system.

Charges are determined based upon the number of service days per week and the estimated shipping volume. See the Current Fee Schedule.
