SRS in Kansas

On July 19, the State Library hosted a meeting of the Broadband Advisory Council which is funded by a grant from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. At that meeting, there was discussion about the closing of SRS offices across Kansas and noted that in the press release and in many articles, the public was directed to "visit and use their libraries" to access information about SRS programs.

State Library Legislative Fiscal Analyst, Shirley Morrow, attended the meeting. She went back to her department and spoke with someone who is responsible for the SRS budget and got some information for us. Below you will find the website to which libraries may direct people who come to the library asking for SRS forms and information.

Subject: Question about information on SRS


During the meeting yesterday, Bill Crowe brought up the closing of the Lawrence SRS office and that the public library was brought up. Upon further investigation, I found out that the Secretary of SRS announced that people can access SRS information and file for help at the local library so I talked to our fiscal for SRS and she forwarded the link. Feel free to send this out to all that were at the meeting (especially Bill) so they can have the information in case people start asking what to do and where to go.
