School & Library
The Caldwell school system serves a 94 square mile area in southwestern Sumner county. All attendance centers are located in Caldwell. The district is unique in that it maintains no regular bus transportation routes; instead, the parents are paid to provide transportation. Special education services are provided at the Caldwell Schools through Sumner County Education Services Interlocal, District #619. Low student to teacher ratios and the latest in technology provide a wonderful learning environment for students.
Caldwell is also a member of the South Central Kansas Education Network which provides high school (and college) course offerings through a two-way interactive fiber-optic system.

The Caldwell Research Club was organized October 4, 1899. The members collected books for a reading room above the Fossett store. Later, this collection of about 600 books was moved to the city hall. Andrew Carnegie agreed to furnish $7000 to the city of Caldwell to erect a free public library building. The Caldwell Carnegie Library was one of 59 public libraries constructed in Kansas at a cost to Carnegie of $874,996. Today the library is located in downtown Caldwell.
Services: Wireless Internet, Digital Caldwell Newspapers Census, Police, and Cemetery Records, Extensive Local History Collection, and meeting rooms available.
