The Rossville Community Library ( has been serving the Rossville area since 1950. We continue to update the library building, collection, and services as the needs and wants of our culture and community evolve. We participate in a shared catalog

( containing more than 1 million books, movies, music CDs, video games, newspapers, magazines, and more. If we don’t have what you want, we will do our best to find it for you somewhere in Kansas! We can also help you get e-books and audiobooks for a variety of devices.

Most of our services and programs are offered for free at the library—open 24/7 WiFi, seven public-use computers, color scanner, storytime every Thursday morning at 10:15, “Main Street Bookies” book club every third Friday of the month, homebound delivery service, database access to quality research tools and learning centers, voter registration information, notary service, and one-on-one assistance (you choose the topic) with “Book a Librarian” every Tuesday morning. Please make an appointment for the notary service and “Book a Librarian” to ensure staff availability.

Some services that have a nominal fee are $0.10 for each black and white page printed from the computer, copied on the copy machine, or faxed (incoming and outgoing, 10 pages a day); $0.50 for color copies (10 pages a day) and business-card sized lamination; and $1 for CD/DVD cleaning and letter-sized lamination.

One of our main ongoing projects is the digitization of our local historical archives. Visit to view the history of Rossville and the surrounding areas, genealogy help, obituaries, and local cemetery burials. If you find the listing of an obituary that you would like to have, let us know and we can make a copy of it for you for free (unless a large amount of copies has been requested). Check back often as we continue to add items!
