EGS partnering on Kauffman Museum exhibit
Sherie Holmes
Sheri Holmes is the Director of Library and Media Services at the Ellinwood School and Community Libraries

In January, Ellinwood School-Community Library will host the exhibit “K is for Kansas” from the Kauffman Museum in Newton. In preparation for a partner exhibit, Ellinwood Grade School 4th-6th graders will be researching a variety of Ellinwood sites for an “E is for Ellinwood” display. If you are able to give input regarding the history for your place of business, please contact Sheri Holmes at or stop by ESCL in the mornings.
