On the right hand side of our website, you will see a black tab that says Learning. When you click on that link a new screen pops out with tutorials on how to use various programs. BUT, the most exciting thing is that all of our virtual story time programs will be available there, so if you miss one, or are babysitting the grandkids, or just bored, you can click on the link and watch story time with Miss Janet. We will still record on Facebook Live for now and then transfer the files to Niche Academy for archive purposes. Currently this does not require a login, but eventually you will need to login with your card number and phone number just like you do to access our databases. Check it out and let us know what you think. Lots more exciting things to come here in the near future.

This new website was made possible through a 2021 American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) Public Library Grant secured by the Southeast Kansas Library System (SEKLS), who was instrumental in the coordination of this redesign project and will lead ongoing support for the website maintenance and updates. Special thanks to Robin Hastings and the Northeast Kansas Library System (NEKLS) for website hosting setup, transition, and technical support. Design and web development services were provided by SYZYGY 1 Media.
