Grant Award

Rossville Community Library receives
Kansas Humanities Council Grant

TOPEKA – The Kansas Humanities Council (KHC) recently awarded the Rossville Community Library a $2,505 grant for the “Rossville Community Library and Kansas Memory Collaboration” photograph digitization project.  Adrienne Olejnik serves as the project director. 

The project will allow the library to preserve, digitize, and make publicly available our local historic photographs. The photographs will be archived and available for viewing at the Kansas Historical Society’s website, Kansas Memory.

“KHC Heritage grants encourage the preservation of local cultural resources,” said Julie Mulvihill, executive director of the Kansas Humanities Council.  “This project ensures that the Rossville Community Library’s photograph collection will be preserved and accessible for future generations.”

The Kansas Humanities Council conducts and supports community-based programs, serves as a financial resource through an active grant-making program, and encourages Kansans to participate in their communities.  For more information contact the Kansas Humanities Council at 785/357-0359 or www.kansashumanities.org.

Principle funding for this program is provided by the Kansas Humanities Council, a nonprofit cultural organization promoting understanding of the history, traditions, and ideas that shape our lives and build community.

Home Delivery Service

The Rossville Community Library is excited to offer a new service to you! Our Home Delivery Service is the perfect way to enjoy the benefits of the library for our community members who are unable to physically visit the library.

Service Qualifications
Participants in the Home Delivery Service should reside within the delivery service area (see the map below) and have difficulty getting to the library.

Program Specifications
The Rossville Community Library will provide library books and materials to you at no charge. A library staff member or volunteer will deliver books to you every two weeks (or less often, if you prefer). If you are not currently a library cardholder, you will be added to our database and issued a library card to allow us to maintain adequate records.

Please understand that while we will do our best to match books to your tastes, we are unable to know your tastes precisely; therefore, you may receive selections that you do not like or that contain material offensive to you. Please let us know, and we will use that information to guide future selections. If you have specific titles you would like, let us know, and we’ll do our best to locate those specifically.
