Too many people, it seems, aren't quite sure what life at a 21st-century library is all about. The Missouri Library Association has come up with a fun way for us to share what we do: Library Snapshot Day, celebrated this year on Wednesday, January 24. Follow along on social media by searching for the hashtag #LibrarySnapshotDay.
Did you know the Kansas City Public Library offers such outreach services as Home Bound Books by Mail, Lobby Stops, Books to Give, and Books to Go? Are you familiar with our Refugee & Immigrant Services & Empowerment team?
Have you found your way to the fifth floor of our downtown Central Library, which is home to a wealth of local history and genealogy resources? Or to the third-floor H&R Block Business & Career Center, where people can get help searching for jobs, starting businesses, or creating and developing nonprofit and entrepreneurial ventures?
Were you aware that our 10 Library locations offer services beyond checking out books and DVDs? That many offer free health, financial, and public safety workshops?
Check out our Library Snapshot Day collection. We hope you walk away learning something new about the services we provide and what we do for the community.
