Library Robots!

Ok, well, we don't quite have robot helpers, yet. But we have next best thing at some of our branches: automated sorting! The Library circulates around 7 million items per year. When you place a hold to pick up at a conveniently located branch, we work to get it there as quickly and efficiently as possible. In addition to our friendly staff, we’re using technology to improve our work. Coming soon to Corinth, Antioch, Monticello and Lenexa City Center: automated sorting! The image here illustrates the kind of sorter we’ll be installing.This helps materials get checked in and routed to you faster. You can watch automated sorting at work already at Central, Blue Valley and Leawood.
