While the Kansas City Public Library has reopened our doors for many in-person services again, there are still a few personal services we have available by appointment.

Patrons are limited to one session per service per day in order to accommodate as many people as we safely can. Not all locations offer the same services; please visit your preferred location's page to see which services they offer at this time.

Visitors should comply with the library's current safety guidelines.
For information about current services offered by the Kansas City Public Library, visit our Coronavirus page.
