genealogy research

The State Library of Kansas will open its doors to Kansans wishing to learn new library skills at this year’s Kansas Book Festival, Saturday, September 7 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Festival goers can visit three learning stations in the State Library: genealogy research, digital book e-lending and early childhood literacy. Genealogy learning stations will have experts on hand to teach Kansans how to conduct family research using some of the best genealogy databases available. Residents will also have a chance to see digital book e-lending demos, view the statewide digital book collection of over 50,000 digital books and get technical help from experienced staff at the digital book e-lending learning station. An early childhood literacy expert will also be present, demonstrating techniques and tips used to develop the skills children need to be ready to read.

The State Library is located on the third floor of the State Capitol building in Topeka. The library is open Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. On the Saturday of the Book Festival, the library will be open 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

These learning stations will be part of the 2013 Kansas Book Festival, held at the Kansas State Capitol (300 SW 10th Ave, Topeka KS). For more information, visit kansasbookfestival.com.
