Introducing our new Website!

The new website was made possible through a 2021 American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) Public Library Grant secured by the Southeast Kansas Library System (SEKLS), who was instrumental in the coordination of this redesign project and will lead ongoing support for the website maintenance and updates. Special thanks to Robin Hastings and the Northeast Kansas Library System (NEKLS) for website hosting setup, transition, and technical support. Design and web development services were provided by SYZYGY 1 Media.

The Kansas State Library has used Institute of Museum and Library Services ARPA funding to award project grants to public libraries in Kansas to support digital inclusion efforts to enable libraries to reach residents such as through internet hotspots, accessible Wi-Fi, and digital content and related resources, particularly in support of education, health, and workforce development needs; Provide rapid emergency relief to libraries, allowing them to safely respond to the pandemic and implement public health protocols; And support library services that meet the needs of their communities.
