Moms and Dads! Is your student reading a book during Christmas Break, or did they receive a book or two for a gift? You can check the reading level and how many points that book is worth. A great incentive to read and be ahead in reading when school begins again! Go to : www.renlearn.com . Go to the “store” and then “quiz search”. Good luck!
Many of you have asked for sources for FREE e-books. This is a link I nabbed from Finney County Public Library in Garden City. I hope you find a lot to read!

In response to the needs of many low income Kansans, Kansas Legal Services has created interactive interviews that will create forms to:
· File for a Divorce in a marriage with or without minor children
· File a reply to a divorce
· Prepare a Decree of Divorce
· Calculate child support and complete a Kansas Child Support Worksheet
· Seek a Waiver of Court Filing fees
· Change an adult’s legal name
· Expunge a Criminal conviction in Kansas
These forms are available at http://www.kansaslegalservices.org/FreeLegalForms.
These forms use interactive software to ask questions and obtain information needed to complete the document. Information needed by self represented users is provided during the process. The information provided can be saved by the user, in a password protected file, for later use. The forms are hosted on a national site – www.lawhelpinteractive.org. When completed, the forms are available to the user in an editable Word format. Instructions with the forms provide step by step guidance for self representation in Kansas courts.
The Public Library on the KLS website (www.kansaslegalservices.org) allows users to view items in a number of topic areas, including family law, collection matters, disability concerns, housing and Elder Law. The resources can also be searched for information on a particular topic. Resources in the library include information created by Kansas Legal Services, as well as links to information on other Kansas and national sites.
Users of the website can learn more about legal services available from Kansas Legal Services and can apply for services on line.
For more information on these on line resources, publicity materials or to suggest other resources that could be useful, contact Marilyn Harp, Executive Director, firstname.lastname@example.org.
