Free Basic Library Service

At its November 2018 meeting in Cunningham, the South Central Kansas Library System Executive Committee authorized a new “Free Basic Library Service and Considerations for SCKLS Member Libraries” policy:

The purpose of the policy is to clarify Kansas laws and regulations relative to SCKLS membership and local member library authority.  It defines free basic library service and considerations relative to fees for service.  The new policy establishes that
since funding from SCKLS derives from public tax-support, SCKLS funds shall not be used to pay costs associated with services or programs for which a local member library charges fees. 

The new
“Free Basic Library Service and Considerations for SCKLS Member Libraries” becomes effective January 1, 2019.  If you have questions or comments about the policy please feel free to contact SCKLS Director Paul Hawkins, by phone or e-mail:  800-234-0529, Ext. 113 or
