National Library Week

Post Date: Thu, April 8, 2021

Libraries are essential civic and cultural institutions in our society. They're gathering places, service providers, and hubs of learning, growth, and discovery. What makes a library a transformative presence in communities? As this year's National Library Week draws to a close, we're taking a moment to recognize the many ways the Library — and specifically, our staff — strive to support and serve our city and its people.

We’re observing National Library Week, which runs April 3-9, 2022. This year’s theme, Connect With Your Library, underscores the role of libraries – here in Kansas City and nationwide – in connecting individuals, families, and entire communities to an array of crucial resources, from internet access and digital devices to programs, classes, and of course books.
