Software Lending Library

Making high-quality software accessible to those who need it.

Check It Out

Software Lending Library is a project of the Kansas City Public Library that allows anyone with a library card to check out a variety of software applications for temporary use on compatible computers. It is currently in beta phase as it works out licensing issues with software creators. Its conception occurred at the March 2012 Hacking the Gigabit City event.

More than just a way to borrow free programs, the Software Lending Library was created to promote digital inclusion by enabling students, entrepreneurs, and job seekers to access software needed to be successful in a technology-driven world.
