The library is the literacy lifeline for more than 45,000 children in Shawnee County. We’ve put research and data into identifying exactly what kids need in our community, and our wide range of services, collections and partnerships all work to enhance the lives of Topeka’s future leaders and doers. That, in turn, fuels better quality of life for all.

Plus, the library is simply awesome! It’s a place to meet up with friends, get homework projects done, read comics in a magical setting and discover a thirst for learning. Get your kids a library card and start a relationship with the library that will transform lives.
