The front of the building is amazing。 Once you walk in you are surrounded by knowledge and beauty and wisdom。 We saw a fantastic postcard collection that covered well over a century of Kansas City history。
Great library and the renovation is extremely well done. The garden area on the top floor is beautiful and I saw it in the winter. Very unique space with multiple levels to explore and it is free!
It is simply the most beautiful library I have ever seen。 It had been a bank in past years。 It was all marble columns and floors。 It still had the original vault with its huge thick door, in fact they show movies inside of it。 Just awesomely magnificent。
this library is very nice. lots of good reading and audio/video stuff. I spent a lot of time here. go up to the top floor for a good view of Kansas City.
This library, IMHO, is the best library in KC - it's LARGE and I can't imagine it not having a title you are looking for. The online service and in person service is excellent. Self check-out actually works. Reservation system works well. And, I like the location near the Plaza because it's right by several restaurants; you can grab your books and lunch all over your lunch hour easily.
My husband and I often register for the free author and guest speaker programs offered through the Kansas City Public Library. We try to attend at least one per month. The books discussed by their authors range from local sports to controversial historical topics. There is an audience Q & A session following the author's presentation. Often there is a short reception preceding the program that is also free of charge. You can sign up to receive a monthly newsletter or receive email notices. Definitely one of the best educational programs in Kansas City.
There are always great events going on here。 Libraries are such an excellent resource for free entertainment。
Beautiful historical buillding right around the edge of the Power & light district。 Love the European style columns and the chandeliers。 Def。 worth stopping by if you enjoy this type of architectural design。
It's probably a grate library。 I just wanted to say a few words about street view。 This is unusual, unforgettable building。 Who put those trees in front of building? Why? It doesn't make any sense。
We didn't go inside just took pictures in front of the books painted on wall. Loved it! Would recommend to have pictures done in front of them.
