The Weather Outside is Frightful!!!!

11/25/2018 11:26:00 PM

Due to the recent snow storm the Library would like to remind everyone to stay safe and be careful.


We will post closings on the website and on Facebook.    We like to protect our staff as well….so with this in mind, due to the recent snow storm the library will open as soon as staff can get there safely.  If school is closed, then storytime and LEGO Club  will also be closed.  If you are unsure if the library is open,  please call the library at 785-883-2870 to confirm someone is there.


Also, if the library closes due to weather you can renew items online. We do not charge fines unless you damage the item.  We also have a 24 hour drop box for returning your items at your convenience.


Once again stay safe and warm.


The Library appreciates your patience regarding serious weather conditions.
