DescriptionThe Hays Public Library, consistently ranked among America's top libraries by the HAPLR, is located in the beautiful and historic Chestnut Street District of Downtown Hays. We offer free internet access stations and Wi-Fi, periodical & book reading areas, and an art gallery. In addition to its many resources, the Library hosts many activities for youth and adults alike, including live music, special presentations by authors, games and crafts for youth, lectures and discussions, and more.

The Hays Public Library features Children's and Young Adult Departments which sport large collections of books, graphic novels, music CDs, and games, and include separate computer labs for their respective youths. The Dorothy D. Richards Kansas Room is a specialized resource for Kansas History and Genealogical research. The library is also home to the Friends of the Library used book store.

Hays' history claims such colorful figures as George Amstrong Custer, "Buffalo Bill" Cody, and "Wild Bill" Hickock; the surrounding downtown area features a historic "walking tour" exploring Hays' Wild West days. The Library is also in easy walking distance of several restaurants and shoppes, art galleries, and the Ellis County Historical Society, and is only a few blocks from Fort Hays State University.

From I-70, take exit 159 and drive south 2 miles on Vine Street (US-183), then turn west (right) at 13th and proceed to Main Street (less than one mile). Street parking is available throughout downtown Hays; a parking lot is located off of 12th Street on the southwest side of the building.
