Welcome to Kansas 150 SLK!

Welcome to the State Library of Kansas' blog celebrating 150 years of Kansas statehood!

Within the issues to come we will be providing you with links to resources on the state of Kansas celebrating its entrance as the 34th state in the Union on January 29, 1861 to the present. We will wander from east to west visiting places of beauty, notoriety and memorable events. We will journey through our state's history learning what and who took a part in its development. We will also enjoy Kansas' cultural, ethnic and religious heritage. Kansas stretches out before us ready to tell us her stories and we will listen and learn together.

During 2010 we'll issue a new article every two weeks. In the sesquicentennial year we plan on a new article every week. Our hope is to supply librarians and other interested folks a look at special places, faces and events in Kansas' past and present.

So saddle up and join us. Pull on some comfortable boots, set a broad-rimmed hat on your head to keep the sun, snow and rain out of your eyes... and let's ride!

  1. This is great. I'm planning to do something for the big date next year in my library, so this will give me lots of materials and ideas.
