Beginning Tuesday, May 19, 2020, the Library initiates a phased-in reintroduction of some services and operations.  We begin with a new Pop In/Pick Up contact-free holds service, allowing patrons to pick up holds at five locations during designated hours, expanding to others in the coming weeks. But anxious as we are – and know that you are, too – we will remain cautious and deliberate. Read more about what our next steps are.

Follow updates at kclibrary.org/coronavirus. You can also find additional information at kclibrary.org/covid19resources.
