Koerperich Bookbinders in downtown Selden, Kansas

 Koerperich Bookbinders

downtown Selden

Selden is located in Sheridan, [SD], county on Hwy 83. The community, though small, has many amenities because people in the community work and volunteer their time and money to ensure Selden has the facilities they want and need to meet the needs of their community. There's a library on the main street staffed by volunteers and a fitness center, put together by community contributions in time and money, available for members to join. Selden has, in other words, a very strong sense of community where working together is the way to get things done.


Selden has two churches (Catholic and Methodist), an elementary school (along with the district offices for the USD), and a nice collection of businesses including a small motel (3 units), a lumberyard, a furniture store, an agricultural supply store, a grocery store, an elevator, an auto body shop, multiple construction companies, a bank, and two eating establishments, along with various additional services.

A bookbindery, Koerperich Bookbinders, located on the main street of town, was founded in Selden in 1969 and closed in 2013. They provided bindery services for individuals (even a single book) to large collections of books and were a certified library binder. They were listed as a finalist for one of the eight wonders of Kansas Commerce.
