Kansas Room

About

The Kansas Room of the Atchison Library is a virtual treasure chest for anyone wanting to know more about the City of Atchison and Atchison County. The shelves contain biographies of many of Atchison’s founders and developers as well as geographic and family histories. Past volumes of The Atchison Globe and other newspapers are available on microfilm making searches easy and fast. Other reference resources include school yearbooks, pictures and obituaries, just to name a few. We are working on digitizing our historic photo collection. See our Flickr page for the latest updates.
