Kansas Center for the Book

The mission of the Kansas Center for the Book is to stimulate public interest in the educational and cultural role of the book; authorship and writing; literacy; and the promotion of reading and libraries.

The Kansas Center for the Book is a state affiliate of the Center for the Book in the Library of Congress. The Kansas Center for the Book affiliated with the national Center for the Book in 1987, and was hosted and headquartered at the Topeka and Shawnee County Public Library from then until 2005, when it moved to the State Library of Kansas. It is now a non-profit, tax-exempt program of the State Library.

While the Kansas Center for the Book is headquartered at the State Library of Kansas, it is not so much a location as an ideal. The Kansas Center for the Book intends to be the center of the promotion and fostering of the printed word in our state. It is our Center for the Book.

To learn more about activities of the Kansas Center for the Book, please see our Projects page.
