“On the Lighter Side” Theme for TALK Series

Sometimes all you can do is look at life and laugh.
That’s what this fall’s Kansas Humanities TALK book discussion series author’s do.  Plan on joining these lively Tuesday night discussions.  Books can be checked out at the library.

We had a lively discussion with Dana Waters on September 19.

Kinsley High School Yearbooks are online

Want to look in an old KHS yearbook to remember a friend or look up some local history?  Now you easily can!

The Oklahoma Correctional Industries recently digitized our yearbook collection at no charge to enable us to archive this valuable local resource.  Then the Southwest Kansas Library System technology staff helped us make them easily accessible to you thru our website.  The earliest volumes are 1914-1917, with 10 more scattering thru the years until the complete 1947-2016 volumes.

(Be patient accessing a volume; it takes a little time to load all those picture memories.)
