Hot Spots and Garden Seeds at SPL

Jeff GarretsonFebruary 16, 2022

From seeds to be sown this spring in the garden to piles of books and movies, the Salina Public Library continues to serve patrons with a mix of new and traditional choices to discover.

Library manager Melanie Hedgepeth joined the Additional KSAL Morning News Wednesday with a look at how its staff continues to use creative new ways to serve the community.

Hedgepeth says internet hotspots that can be accessed and taken home are helping fill the internet gap for many customers.


Hedgepeth and staff recently put together a list of challenges for the community to participate in this year as well.
