We are here to help inspire a love of learning. With new books arriving every month and many wonderful titles already on our shelves waiting to be rediscovered, we aim to help students develop a lifelong love of getting lost in a good book. Books broaden our understanding of the world by taking us on adventures and allowing us to experience new things. We believe readers grow into leaders!

Kansas State Library Card

All SVMS students have a Kansas State Library eCard which allows them to access to many resources and databases through the Kansas State Library.

Students receive a physical library card that lists their 6-digit eCard number and reminds them that their PIN/password is their birthdate in DDMMYYYY format.

Kansas State Library eCards expire after 3 years.
