Central Kansas Library System supports access to materials. To further this end, most materials in the collection are willing lent to requesting libraries.

In rare cases, we may lend materials "For Library Use Only" or for a shorter loan term. Sometimes, especially with genealogy/local history materials designated "Reference", we are willing to photocopy a reasonable amount of pages from an available index.

CKLS participates in several resource sharing networks.

  • PILL (Pathfinder InterLibrary Loan) 
  • KICNET (Kansas Information Circuit)
  • OCLC 

KIC code: CD6

OCLC code: CD5

Our department also handles ILL requests, both borrowing and lending, on behalf of Great Bend Public Library and, sometimes, member libraries of the System.





The Basics playaway2


A PLAYAWAY is a self-playing digital audio book that comes pre-loaded on a small storage device. Each PLAYAWAY can hold content that ranges from 6 to 24 hours of play time.  To listen to a PLAYAWAY, you will need a AAA battery and a pair of headphones or earbuds which you can supply yourself. 

The PLAYAWAY device was designed with a universal headphone jack to work with almost any type of headphone, speaker, or car adapter.
