On May 22, 2018, there was an accidental fire on the roof of Hale Library. The Library suffered substantial damage as a result of the smoke and the large amount of water needed to extinguish the fire. The building will remain closed for the 2018-2019 school year.  All branch libraries are fully operational and a new library help desk is located near Radina's in the K-State Student Union. For additional information on library services since the fire, please visit the Hale Library FAQ page.

The IT Help Desk, the Media Center and the ITS services located on the second floor were completely destroyed. The IT Help Desk and equipment checkout relocated to the K-State Student Union Cat’s Pause Lounge. Follow the progress as we rebuild our IT infrastructure and user services on the ITS Recovery page. For updates on system and services maintenance and outages, visit the ITS Status blog.


The Libraries have a number of resources available for community patrons including access to librarians, computers, and library cards.
