we stand against racism

Libraries are agents of change, access and information. We work for all communities to be peaceful and inclusive, while respecting the rights of every individual. Each positive step brings progress. The libraries that are members of the Northeast Kansas Library System are working diligently to strengthen and improve the communities they serve.
