Southeast High School originally housed the collection, then Library staff operated out of a kiosk in the Landing Mall before the branch moved to its current location. Extensive renovation in 2018 brought new meeting rooms, a children’s area, and thousands of additional items for checkout, in addition to the Goppert Media Center, home of the KC Digital Media Lab.

Southeast Branch

The Southeast Branch Library is located across from Swope Park and the Kansas City Zoo. It has particularly strong collections in African-American literature, urban fiction, urban Christian fiction, children's folklore, and animals, as well as jazz, blues, and gospel music on compact disc.
