Kansas Heritage Center

The Kansas Heritage Center and Research Department are located on the lower level of the library.

Keeping history alive! The Kansas Heritage Center is a social studies resource center operated through the Dodge City Public Library in Dodge City, Kansas.

The emphasis is history – especially the history of Kansas, the Great Plains and the Old West. A research library of books, microfilm, and vertical file materials are maintained at the Center.

The Kansas Heritage Center has a wide array of resources available in person and via email, phone, and social media. The archive room, staff assistance, and the reading room, which houses our circulating and reference collections, is open to the public during regular library hours.
