It’s week 46 of our Kansas sesquicentennial video series and also National Drug Facts Week, so we thought it would be interesting to take a closer look at our Chinese snuff bottle collection.
It’s national Native American Heritage Month, so for week 45 of our Kansas sesquicentennial video series we’re featuring Jaune Quick-to-See Smith. A painter of Salish, French-Cree, and Shoshone heritage, Jaune Quick-to-See Smith’s art “presents a cross-cultural dialogue between those values and experiences of the artist’s inherited past and those of late-20th-century Euro-American culture.”
Boo! It’s Halloween! It’s also National Book Month, so for week 44 of our Kansas sesquicentennial video series we’re taking a closer look at our Pop-up book collection. Like Halloween, these books capitalize on the thrill of anticipation and suspense by promising unexpected surprises around every corner—er—page.
Continuing to highlight National Book Month, for week 43 of our Kansas sesquicentennial video series we’ve chosen to focus on the Moses Fine Art Book Collection, which includes books on architecture, costume design, furniture, painting, printmaking and sculpture.
October is National Book Month, so for week 42 of our Kansas sesquicentennial video series we thought it would be cool to feature our Fore Edge Book Collection.

PLUS! Hear Susan Marchant tell the story of one famous resident, Boston Corbett.
