Digital resources

With your NEXT card: Hoopla, Flipster, Kansas City Star online edition along with other Kansas Newspapers & AtoZ Database. For more information, see below:

For Hoopla information, visit

Patrons may access Flipster once they are signed on to their NEXT patron account. If you do not know your username or password, the default username is the 13-digit number on the back of your NEXT card and the default password is the last four digits of the phone number you provided when you received your card. If these do not work, please contact the library and we can look up your username and password. Once you have logged in once, you can change your password if you like, but staff must set your username. E-mail the library at if you need us to look up your username and password.

The sign in link appears in the upper right corner of your web browser. On a smart phone, the link may appear as an image of a person’s head and shoulders instead of text.

Once you are logged in, the Flipster link appears by your name.

The links to the Kansas City Star Image edition and A-Z Database (business resource, people finder and job finder) are located on the library’s homepage. Your password should be the 13 digit number on the back of your NEXT card. E-mail if you have problems gaining access.
