Phone from Home services are directly available to rural residents of the seventeen Central Kansas Library System counties. Residents of communities without public libraries in those same counties are also eligible for the Services.

CKLS Phone from Home can function as these residents' "home library". By calling the toll-free number (800-362-2642) they may request materials or ask reference questions. The books, video, and audio materials requested will be sent directly to the patron's home and will include a postage-paid return label.

The Technical Services Department orders, catalogs, and processes library materials for member libraries, as well as providing MARC records or catalog cards as needed. We supply physical and bibliographical preparation of books so they are ready to place on the shelf for patron use. We secure the best possible discounts from jobbers through volume buying and provide processing supplies to member libraries at quantity discount prices.

Ordering

CKLS orders enough popular titles from Ingram to receive a 40% discount on most items. We can order from other sources as well, but discounts may not be as liberal.

Librarians wishing to purchase items themselves and wanting CKLS cataloging and processing can have items "dropped shipped" to us. This means the shipping address should say [Your library name] c/o Central Kansas Library System, 1409 Willams Street, Great Bend, KS. Billing address should specify your library.

Cataloging

CKLS member libraries are encouraged to provide access to their collections through standard cataloging (MARC standards) and quality bibliographic information. Member librarians are expected to enter new records and remove obsolete records from the statewide bibliographic database through either the CKLS Technical Services Department or another method approved by the State Library.

All CKLS cataloging provides catalog cards or MARC record to the library and places the cataloging record on the state's Kansas Library Catalog. Librarians wishing only cataloging for items should fill out "pink slips" for that item and mail them to Technical Services. If you need more “pink slips” contact our Department.

We also do original cataloging for all items that do not have MARC records from other sources. We place a high priority on local history and genealogy.
