Legal and Government
When U.S. Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy recently announced his retirement, a national conversation kicked into gear regarding the process of nominating and confirming a new justice to our nation’s highest court. To help make sense of the SCOTUS – its history, its role in our society, the personalities in its ranks – the Library has gathered a collection of resources to help you explore how its decisions have influenced the country and the lives of its people.
The office of Missouri’s secretary of state wants public libraries to act in the very best interests of our children. We’ve long done that at the Kansas City Public Library and have no doubt that is the priority and practice of libraries across the state.
As information discovery has evolved, so has the Kansas City Public Library. We’ve launched a new Community Reference Team to help patrons connect with information and resources needed to achieve personal and professional goals. The Library can help you find jobs, start businesses, grow nonprofits, manage personal finances, develop healthy lifestyles, and more.
