Our Mission

The State Library of Kansas seeks to improve the lives of Kansas residents by providing resources that: increase reading readiness and on-grade reading acuity; improve chances for academic success; help start and grow businesses; assist individuals with employment opportunities; and provide lifelong educational opportunities.

The State Library of Kansas is located in the State Capitol building in Topeka. The library's primary mission is to serve the residents of Kansas through direct service and through support of local libraries.
