The Library Development Accreditation Program is intended to encourage and recognize attainment of the standards for public library service in the Southwest Kansas Library System. All fully participating public libraries are invited to participate in the accreditation program.
Applications for accreditation will be accepted from November 1 – 30 and notification of accreditation will be given by January 1. Accreditation will be valid for two years.
The library service levels in the Library Development Accreditation program are adapted from those contained in 2016 Revision of Kansas Public Library Standards.
