Public broadcasting stations in Kansas and New Mexico are collaborating with the American Archive of Public Broadcasting on a new project to digitize their content. The project is intended to increase the geographic diversity of AAPB’s collection, which does not currently represent Kansas and New Mexico. AAPB is the product of a partnership between the Library of Congress and the WGBH Educational Foundation to preserve public media content that is at risk of being lost and to make it accessible for research. AAPB will work with Kansas stations KMUW-FM in Wichita, High Plains Public Radio in Garden City, Kansas Public Radio in Lawrence, KRPS-FM in Pittsburg, KPTS-TV and KHCC-FM in Hutchinson, and Vietnamese Public Radio, which airs on a KMUW subcarrier.

Newspapers were common, but the literacy rate was 61%.
