The Library’s North-East location plans to reopen fairly quietly Thursday, December 17, 2020. There’ll be no splashy ceremony. Plans are to hold a public celebration sometime after the first of the year, as soon as it's safe, formally unveiling an extensively remodeled facility that reflects the rich diversity of its neighborhood. But we’ll say this up front: The Library, and Kansas City’s Historic Northeast, have a new jewel.
If Helen Ostenberg’s life is turned into a movie script — and her story line does read a bit like a Lifetime channel classic — the opening scene would be in the streets of Kansas City.
