Rotating Book Van


The rotating book van is a service from the North Central Kansas Library System.  We receive around 350 books that then rotate out in eight (8) weeks.  This adds around 2,100 books to our collection, throughout the year.  We have everything from picture books, children chapter books, Young Adult, Adult Fiction, Adult Non-fiction, mystery, Science Fiction, Inspirationals, and Westerns.  Need large print?  We have that too on the book van.  Come in the library and look around the pink and purple book carts!
