Resource Access And Sharing

Resource Access and Sharing is serious about obtaining the materials for library patrons in our Region, whether directly from CKLS or one of the member libraries.

Technical Services
Technical Services works with libraries to purchase, catalog, and process materials for patron use.
Technical Services offers disc cleaning for CD, DVD, Blu-ray, and Games. Please contact Missy for more information.
Interlibrary Loan
Interlibrary Loan borrows materials for patron use that are not owned by our libraries. We also lend materials around the world as part of our commitment to resource sharing.
Phone from Home

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.
