Towanda Public Library

620 Highland
Towanda, KS 67144


The GWFC Nokomis Club started the Towanda Public Library as the Towanda Library on December 19, 1936 in Sutcliffe Drug Store. It was only open on Saturday mornings, and such things as fudge and the like were sold to help keep things going. It was moved around four or five times until moving into the present dedicated building in October of 1987, with the dedication being in December 14, 1987.

The Towanda Public Library is a 3,000 square foot building located at 620 Highland just three short blocks north of Sixth and Main Streets in Towanda. We are now open four days a week to better serve you.

Come on in and let us find the book, tape or reference resource you are looking for, either right here in the Library, or through the Interlibrary Loan System.

We are part of the state library system and have the resources available to help you with your research project. We can also find that book you have been hearing about and have been wanting to read.
