Visit K-State Libraries

K-State Libraries encompass Hale Library, in the heart of K-State’s Manhattan campus, along with four branch libraries. Together, the Libraries provide academic services and a gathering center for students and the K-State community.

As part of our land grant mission, all libraries are open to the public and we welcome visitors to explore our beautiful buildings and collections! Visitors can use any or our Mac computers without logging in as well as our free scanners.
