Kansas City Public Library
Talk about a striking exterior design! We guarantee you won't miss this stop, the giant books outside beckoning your group right into its front doors!
The Kansas City Public Library is one of the finest in all of Missouri, a library that serves over 1.7 million metro KC residents with its multitude of services and resources in general. Winning the National Medal for Museum and Library Service in 2008, receiving 5 stars from the Library Journal in 2013 and 2016, and collecting many more accolades along the way are events that all make this spot so iconic, many organizations recognizing the high quality of the library.
The entire KC complex is made up of the Central Library, 9 different branches, a digital branch, and several outreach programs. Within the Central Library, your group will be able to enjoy browsing the books, catching any signature event happening, watching a film screening, exploring the current exhibits (local arts and culture plus local history), or dropping in on classes going on. There are also additional kid and teen features such as storytime, the Kids Cafe, and the Teen Gaming Club.
Any age will enjoy the books, audio, music, movies and tv, magazines and newspapers, book clubs, and Nove Lists throughout. Did we mention this library has over 135 years of experience and local history under its belt? Talk about an impressive culture and education center!
