Kind of a big deal

Library News header

Fetching the mail can be a drag. But not when it’s Library News time. The August-September issue is packing a punch of feel-good energy, and it’s headed straight to your mailbox. What are we so jazzed about? Well, if you haven’t yet heard, your library is kind of a big deal. This year, we won Library of the Year. No one was terribly surprised to hear the news, but if you’re curious about exactly why the library and community gained this tremendously large feather in our cap, you need only check your mailbox.

Or, instead, check out the online version of Library News here:

There’s a bevy of other kind-of-a-big-deal stuff inside this issue, too:

  • The latest bus in our fleet of outreach vehicles hits the streets this fall, and it’s especially for kids under age 5!
  • A new program is coming soon will put books in the hands of thousands of children in Shawnee County.
  • The largest book sale in Kansas is headed your way.
  • We’ve released our goals for the next decade – do you stand behind them? See what’s in store.
