At The Lawrence Times, we believe that community journalism is not just about providing the news — it’s also about providing information that the people of this community need in order to live and thrive as informed citizens. We are working to curate collections of resources that we hope will be helpful to our readers in Lawrence and Douglas County, and perhaps even beyond.
Resources are provided in tabbed format and as one complete list. Although this list is short now, don’t forget that you can use Control + F (or Command + F on a Mac) to type in a word or two and find resources on this page quickly. Alternatively, you can click “Edit” in most browsers’ toolbars, then click “Find” and type in a few letters or a word to find what you’re looking for.
Is something here listed incorrectly, is a link broken or is there something we need to add?
Please let us know ASAP.
