Summer Reading Coming Soon

All Library locations will be closed on Monday, February 15 in observance of Presidents' Day.

The Kansas City Public Library wants to partner with you on your reading adventures this summer! Starting June 1, for every three hours you read, you can win a prize. Read for 12 hours to complete the program and earn a book plus other prizes. There will also be drawings for additional prizes, so make sure and get your name in for a chance to win!

Register online (after June 1) or at your local library!
