The Diocesan Office of Education wishes to promote a greater freedom to catechists and other school personnel to use the media library. To further this aim, we will no longer charge a fee to use our videos, CDs, and DVDs.


Audio/visuals may be previewed at the Office of Religious Education Media Library. AVs taken from the office for preview must be returned within seven (7) days.


Materials are reserved for use by sending an AV request form to the Media Library or by telephone, (785)827-8746, or by e-mail, julie.bilson@salinadiocese.org Request forms are located on diocesan website under Religious Education, then AV Library, http://salinadiocese.org/av-library . In requesting materials please indicate: title, and if part of a series, which segment you need first and second choice of film, and first and second choice of date.

Use Period

AVs may be reserved at any time and are encouraged to be reserved at the earliest opportunity to assure their availability on the date needed.  Advance reservation are mailed a week before desired use unless other arrangements are made.

All audio/visual materials should be postmarked the day after showing unless extra time has been agreed upon with the media librarian. All preview material must be returned within seven (7) days.
