Operations, services, and information about the Libraries during fire recovery.

Library Research Guide


We are extremely grateful for the outpouring of support that has been offered since the fire. At this time, Belfor, a property restoration company, is handling all disaster recovery efforts with the support of key library and IT staff. If volunteer opportunities come available we will update this page with information.

We are working with insurance adjusters to assess the damage, and do not have an estimated cost yet. Before the fire, we were about to embark on a complete renovation of the first floor to create a collaborative, technology-enhanced space to support student success at K-State. We plan to continue this project, and now see an opportunity to expand our renovation efforts.

If you wish to make a financial contribution, a fund has been set up with the KSU Foundation to support Libraries and IT recovery. Donations can be made at https://give.evertrue.com/ksu/help-for-hale
