Hi, I'm Mona Huggins. This is my fourteenth year to be the librarian at KSD.
The campus has two libraries: one in the Emery Elementary building, and the other in the Roberts secondary building. The mission of Kansas State School for the Deaf Library Media Center is to promote lifelong usage of ideas and information.
Please become familiar with this website. The links on the left-hand side should be very useful in helping you, as a patron, locate research information as well as pleasure activities.
A word about the Visual Story Reading program; publisher contracts for selling these videotapes will expire on December 31, 2010. If you wish to purchase any of our videotapes for your home, school, church, or business, please do so at your earliest convenience. The videotapes are $8.00 per title plus shipping. Also, KSD can not reformat the videotapes to another medium; however, after purchase, the buyer certainly has the right to reformat any videotape(s) for archival purposes.
The Roberts Library has undergone major renovation this fall. A new HDTV was given to us from Best Buy; therefore, an area for watching and viewing information was established. That new area has a carpet and 4 lounge chairs. Another area established is the reading area. It also has a new area rug, pillows, and a new bookcase. New computers were purchased during the summer and tables from the learning center (TLC) were moved over from Roth building. Each computer has its own table and the library patrons like the configuration much better than the prior layout. Two other areas within the library are the use of the SMARTboard for interactive activities and column displays for student artwork. The first two featured artists are Tim Laudick and Shanae Dickerson. Please take a moment or two to view their artwork on the videos provided on this page.
Hope you enjoy the KSD Library home page and will use it often. Please check back often as more links and video clips will be added. Also, please save this site as one of your favorites!
