The  Library partnered with Connecting for Good and Kansas City Public Schools on April 17, 2020, to distribute 80 computers, Wi-Fi hotspots, headphones, and Turn the Page KC activity packets to KCPS families lacking internet access. Materials were distributed in the parking lot of the Library's Southeast Branch; many patrons in the neighborhood typically rely on the Library for regular computer and internet access. This was one of many ways the Library continues connecting the public with essential technology access during the COVID-19 crisis.
