Some of the homes in Atchison use an Internet Service Provider based in Missouri – so the Kansas databases won’t automatically sign you on. You’ll need to log on manually with a Kansas Library Card. So if you get this screen:
Log in with the number on your Kansas Library Card (not your NExpress/Atchison card!) and use your birthday as a password. If you don’t have a Kansas Library Card you will need to come to the library and apply for one (free.) Temporary SLK cards are no longer available.
