Kansas Day Quiz Bowl

January 29 is Kansas Day! 

Be sure to check out our Kansas Day display window in the foyer of the Library/Community Center.  Items are from the private collection of Nancy Anderson.

The Valley Victors 4-H Club has once again compiled questions for our virtual Kansas Day Quiz Bowl.  Play along with us during the week of Jan. 24.  Five questions will appear on the Library Facebook page each morning, Monday through Saturday.  Post your answers in the comments section, and we will post the correct answers at 6 pm each day.  How well do you know your Kansas facts and history?  (Not a formal contest.  No prizes will be awarded.  We hope you have fun playing!)

Story Time cancellation

Due to the high numbers of COVID in our schools, and by extension, in families with school aged and younger children, we will not be having Story Times the week of January 17 as well as the week of January 24. We apologize for any inconvenience, however, the safety of our patrons is our highest priority! We hope to resume our normal schedule soon. Thank you for your continued support.


Updated COVID policies:


Many people who visit the Library are more vulnerable to COVID-19 and its complications than others.  We have a large number of users who are either too young to get vaccinated, teens and adults with contraindications to the vaccine, senior citizens, and/or users with immuno-compromised systems (think cancer or dialysis patients, transplant recipients, etc.)  While none of us enjoys wearing a mask, let’s all mask up to do our best to help protect our friends and neighbors!

Please note: effective immediately and until further notice, masks are required while visiting the library.   We are happy to provide curbside delivery for those who would rather not wear a mask.  Please continue to keep your library visits short, and please continue to socially distance.  The Library staff, board, and City of Valley Center are continuing to monitor the Covid situation and additional information will be posted as needed.

Per the CDC as of 1/4/22:

“In Sedgwick County, Kansas, community transmission is High. Everyone should wear a mask in public indoor settings.”

Help keep everyone safe!  Please bring and properly wear your mask while visiting the Library!
