Local library personnel toured six area libraries last Tuesday as part of the Southeast Kansas Library System Bus Trip to Libraries.
Roger Carswell, Kim Rutter, and Tammie Benham of SEKLS, and Leah Oswald and Lesa Cole of Iola Public Library participated. Forty-nine library staff members and trustees rode a bus chartered by SEKLS to tour the public libraries in Baldwin City, Lawrence, Topeka, Shawnee, Overbrook, Lyndon, New Strawn and Burlington.
Participants enjoyed seeing the wide variety of library buildings, space arrangements, automated book-sorting machines, and self-checkout machines. Highlights included amazing hand-painted murals, historic furnishings, and innovative ideas for meeting community needs.
