FHSU Profile – Libraries
Hays is home to two outstanding libraries, Forsyth Library on the Fort Hays State University campus and the Hays Public Library.
Forsyth provides educational resources in numerous areas, from digital fossil collections in collaboration with the University's Sternberg Museum of Natural History, collections on space exploration and history in collaboration with the Kansas Cosmosphere and Space Center in Hutchinson, and many educational activities and programs for area schools as well as FHSU students.
Forsyth, in addition to providing comprehensive resources for research by faculty and students and many other learning resources for undergraduate students, has also been part of the Federal Depository Library Program since 1926. The Government Documents Department houses and maintains publications of the United States, state and foreign governments and the United Nations. The department also functions as the Library's reference center for government information.
The Hays Public Library has for years been one of the most-used and finest libraries in the state of Kansas. After a recent total remodeling and addition, it is also one of the most attractive and well organized.
