Located across Brush Creek from the Country Club Plaza, the Plaza Branch is a destination for the entire Kansas City metropolitan area. It boasts particularly strong collections of children’s resources, books on arts and crafts, and business materials, and its downstairs Truman Forum Auditorium is home to many of the Library’s speaking and other signature events.
