After a two-year exile to mobile units located outside the Capitol, the State Library of Kansas will be moving back into the building over the next couple of weeks to its newly restored digs.

"I can't tell you how excited we are to get back in the Statehouse before the 2013 legislative session," said State Librarian Jo Budler.

Movers have already begun relocating the 202,000 book collection, which includes publications more than 200 years old. "It's really quite remarkable to see a collection of this size and importance in motion," Budler said.

Soon to be ready for business, the restored and renovated State Library of Kansas in the Statehouse.
