Populations are calculated by the State Library using the Certified Population by the Secretary of State and a worksheet to determine the Legal Service Area (LSA) for each library.
Funds are disbursed on February 15 each year, per KSA 785-2557. Public libraries will receive through either a direct deposit or a mailed check.
State Aid funds may be used for any public library purpose except construction, repair or debt reduction.
