Our Story

When you walk in, this may be just a comfortable and interesting place. Sit down with a cup of the best coffee in town, straight from Blacksmith Roastery in Lindsborg, Ks. Snack on locally made pastries while you peruse our bookshelves for a used copy of an old favorite. Bring your laptop and hunker down for a study session. Meet friends or business associates.

Thanks to Downtown Pop Culture, we also offer comics, vinyl, cds, and gifts.

But upon closer inspection, you’ll see we aim to be a leading cultural center for regional arts and literature, and a thriving community hub.

Whether it be a place for live music, author readings, poetry nights, book signings, film showings, children's theater, etc., our programming and outreach has come to define our greater mission: to keep the torch of the imagination lit and to use it to reveal this place called Kansas and these still undeniably Great Plains.
