Homebound & Outreach

Children at an outreach event

Homebound Book Service

We provide various methods to help those who are elderly or disabled and cannot get to the Library still check out books and other materials. Call (316) 261-8500 for more information or assistance.

Bulk Loans

Is your facility looking to borrow a collection of books for an extended period? We can provide schools, senior resident facilities, child care centers, and summer camps with reading materials for your group.

Programs To Go

Not only do our librarians love to talk about books, they make house calls! Whether you want to hear a book review at your book club, a talk about Library services at your civic group, or one of the various discussion topics we offer, we can help.

A full list of discussion topics can be found on the Speakers Bureau page.

Outreach Storytimes

We bring storytime to you! Our Youth Outreach Librarian visits preschools, home child care centers and other youth sites that are unable to transport children to storytimes at our libraries.

Community Booth Events

Invite us to your Parents Night, Book Fair, Wellness Fair or other community gathering. We will staff our booth to help your group learn about the free benefits of the Library system.

We may also be able to issue library cards at your location!

Talking Book Service

Talking Books service, or library service for the blind and physically handicapped, is handled by the State Library of Kansas. Call the State Library at (800) 362-0699 for additional information.
