Welcome to the library! Step into Miss Val’s virtual library here.
Looking for books by a specific author but don’t know or want to think up which titles to choose? Let us be your personal book shoppers! Just call 620-223-2882 and tell us you’d like us to do a 10 book grab for you! Tell us your library card #* and the author’s name, and we’ll pick out 10 books by them!**
*Active, unrestricted library account required with us or a SEKnFind library.
**If not enough books are available from us, we may order some from other libraries by that author, choose books by similar authors to make up the difference, or choose as many as we can, up to 10.
We offer children’s book bags on demand. To get one, you must have an active library card with a non-restricted account in SEKLS, or with Fort Scott. Bags are separated into two age groups: Birth – 1st Grade and 2nd – 5th Grades. To order a book bag, call 620-223-2882 or message the library or email Miss Val. Be sure to let us know both age groups and topics you want. There is no limit on how many bags you may order at one time.
Storytime is on Tuesdays at 10 am (late August – May), with a weekly theme, craft or activity, snack, and play area. All ages welcome! We now offer pre-recorded storytimes & accompanying packets on-demand only in our Facebook private Storytime Group or unlisted on our YouTube channel. Message or email us for links and group invitations. Want to request a virtual storytime bag? Email Miss Val or fill out this form to sign up for bags. Suggestions for future themes are welcome – take the poll here.
