In compliance with Kansas City's recent citywide order, masks must be worn by everyone visiting our locations. Get the latest updates on the Library's COVID-19 response here.
Even now, with our physical locations temporarily closed, you can access the Library from anywhere, anytime – through our Digital Branch. It offers a vast collection of materials that can be read in a web browser, download to a mobile device, or streamed online. All for free.
