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.

One hundred years ago the 19th Amendment to the Constitution was ratified, giving women in the U.S. the hard-won right to vote. In commemoration of the centennial, the Library’s Missouri Valley Special Collections has produced a new coloring book profiling local women who took part in the suffrage movement. A limited number of free copies will be available at KC Library locations beginning in March 2020 for Women’s History Month. A digital edition and downloads of all the profiles can be found at kchistory.org/coloringkc.
