We’re thrilled to be among the winners in The Pitch’s Best of Kansas City 2020 – thanks to all who voted for the Central Library as Best Library Branch-MO! It’s a bittersweet recognition this year in that we currently aren't able to welcome guests into our physical buildings in the usual ways due to the COVID-19 pandemic. But we’re honored to have the continued support of our community.
