Six students went on the Emporia Library Tour. The morning started off at the Lyon County History Center. The group toured the building and received a behind the scenes tour from curator Lisa Soller and director Greg Jordan. The tour also included the Lyon County Archives where archivist Ryann Brooks spoke to the group about the importance of maintaining and organizing the archives. After a lunch stop at Las Brisas (pictured), the group received a tour of the Emporia Public Library from Director Robin Clark and a tour of Talking Books on Emporia State’s campus from patron services librarian Bethanie O’Dell. Some favorite aspects of the tour included hearing the passion with which all of the directors spoke about their institutions and the variety of institutions visited.
