CKLS Staff transitioning Ellinwood School/Community Library to the Pathfinder Catalog

Staff from CKLS and Ellinwood Libraries have begun the transfer to our new Pathfinder Catalog at the Ellinwood School/Community Library. This process will occur July 11-15. Patrons will still have access to everything they have always relied on the library for during this transition. We truly appreciate all who have come in to assist us in updating barcodes to prepare for this upgrade! 

Our staff will receive more training on Aug. 8 and we will “go live” on Aug. 10. When you come to the library after the 10th, we will update your information and you will be given a library card that you will be able to use at any Pathfinder Library in the Central Kansas Library System. We will be sharing more information via the newspapers and our Facebook page in the coming weeks.

Sheri Holmes is the director of library and media services for the Ellinwood School and Community Libraries. She can be reached by email at
