'A History Going Back More Than 200 Years': Writer Pays Lyrical Tribute to Library’s North-East Branch
All Kansas City Public Library locations see patrons of every interest, need, and want in search of not only materials like books and magazines but also valuable social, community, and career services. The Library’s resources are free and for all with nothing expected in return, though many patrons find ways of giving back through gifts of time and their own resources.
The Lucile H. Bluford Branch (3050 Prospect Ave.) will remain closed until further notice after learning a staff member has tested positive for COVID-19. That staff member worked the week of November 23. The branch has been closed since Thursday, November 26 for the Thanksgiving break.
The Kansas City Public Library is celebrating the makeover of its Southeast Branch, 6242 Swope Parkway, with a community open house on Saturday, April 28, 2018, from 10:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.
The system’s first branch – the oldest in Kansas City – is marking its 125th birthday with a week of remembrances, appearances, and other activities, plus a special art exhibition.
The Library is thrilled to announce the purchase of additional property near the Lucile H. Bluford Branch with an eye toward expanding services there.
Two innovative art exhibitions at the Central Library are nearing their closing dates, but time to see them hasn’t entirely run out. Headspace, featuring 17 vibrant watercolors on paper by local artist Andy Ryan, has been extended through March 11. Peripheral Visions, which closes March 25, is comprised of dozens of pieces in various media by artists from Imagine That! KC and Johnson County Developmental Supports’ Emerging Artists program.
