Kansas DAR established a research library for its members in 1930. At first, it was a traveling library, moving from city to city, as new state librarians were elected. In 1959 the state society voted to place the growing collection in a permanent location in Dodge City, Kansas.
In 1993 the library moved to the present location in Dodge City, on the lower level of the Village Square Mall, where it welcomes all researchers.
The KSDAR Library is housed with the Kansas Genealogical Society library. Researchers have the added benefit of working in both areas, making use of both fine genealogical collections.
The KSDAR Library contains over 4,000 items, including many old plat maps and the original 1880 Kansas Census Books. The library is staffed entirely by volunteers.
The library has a printed card catalog with expanded data, as well as a searchable, computerized card catalog.
Research services are not available, but anyone is welcome to visit the Kansas DAR Library. There is no charge for members of the Kansas Society Daughters of the American Revolution or Kansas Genealogical Society. Non-members pay a modest fee per visit.
