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.

InterLibrary Loan (ILL)

Are you looking for a book, but we don’t have it in the library? We can search for your desired item with other libraries in Kansas and get it in for you, if available. Ask a librarian to help you fill out an ILL form to see if the book is accessible.
