Northeast Kansas Library System (NEKLS) is one of seven Kansas Regional Systems of Cooperating Libraries. NEKLS is dedicated to providing universal access to exceptional library service through its 117 member libraries (11 academic; 48 public; 50 school districts; 8 special) in the 14 counties of Northeast Kansas through the cooperation and peer support of NEKLS member libraries, and the assistance of the NEKLS staff of library consultants. NEKLS is governed by a System Board composed of one representative from each member library, the members of the Executive Board and eleven members appointed by the taxing counties of the System.
We are leaders and innovators in providing exemplary library services.
The Northeast Kansas Library System inspires and empowers member libraries to engage, educate and add value to their communities.
