How do I get a Library Card?

It’s simple! Just stop by the library, and bring a current form of identification. One of the staff members will ask you a few quick questions and provide you with a card. The card is free, and with it you can check out any of the library’s circulating resources.
Some restrictions do apply, and there’s a $2 replacement fee for a lost or stolen card. If you have any questions, please ask a library employee.

    Has there been any interest in a cake pan checkout? I like to checkout cookbooks from your great selection but I am usually lacking a pan that I do not have the space to keep in my kitchen. I can see that storage and funds to purchase would be an issue. Thanks providing a nice library.

    We have several libraries in KS that have cake pans. As of right now, we aren’t considering purchasing any HOWEVER…you may be able to get some on our Interlibrary loan system. I would be glad to show you how to search for them! Stephanie
