Welcome to the website for the Great Bend Public Library! The library’s mission is to connect people, information, and ideas to support the best quality of life for our community.

Great Bend Public Library will reopen June 8th with adjusted summer hours. Not all services will be available, but we look forward to seeing all of you again. We will continue to ramp up to full services over the summer. If you currently have books and movies checked out, the outside dropbox is now OPEN.

Even though we are closed, you can still use the library. These services will be open for all patrons after the libray opens as well.

     Our digital library has free eBooks, audiobooks, streaming movies, and more.

     Message us if you have questions on Facebook or email us at gbcirc@gmail.com.
