  • Call us at 316-796-1251 or e mail at library@colwich.kscoxmail.com with a request to renew.



If our library is closed on a regular scheduled day (ex. Snow day) we will make the necessary changes so you will not be fined for those days.  Library services are meant to be free and helpful to our patrons, however it requires cooperation from both parties to be successful.
