NExpress is Coming to Burlingame

The Library is joining NExpress, a regional catalog of the Northeast Kansas Library System and 38 other libraries.

The new system will provide:

  • 24/7 access the library at home, work, or wherever you have Internet access
  • Access to over 870,000 books, movies and audiobooks from all of the 38 library collections in the shared catalog
  • Delivery of materials to Burlingame on the Kansas Library Express
  • Email notifications when requested materials arrive for pick-up, an item is due or almost due, and for overdue notices
  • Ability to leave comments in the catalog, create reading lists, and make suggestions for purchase

We are updating registration for all of our patrons and you will have an opportunity to set your own username and password, if you are an Internet user.  The new library cards include one standard size card and one that goes on a keychain.  This is an opportunity for the library update our patron information, clean up the collection and provide you with a valuable new service – easy access to almost 870,000 items!

The library will be closed Saturday, December 17 and Monday, December 19 for training on the new automation system, but we will be open normal hours on Tuesday.

The NExpress Shared Catalog uses Koha, the first open-source integrated library system developed in 1999 by Katipo Communications for the Horowhenua Library Trust in New Zealand.

There is a Story Hour for pre-school and a Summer Reading Program for K thru 4th grade. The Kansas Room is available for meetings and as a study room. A large meeting room is available to clubs and organizations.
