Old Places, New Spaces
All Library locations will close at 5 p.m. on Wednesday, November 25, and remain closed all day on Thursday, November 26, for Thanksgiving.
The 2013 Kansas City Architecture Series examines how historic buildings in Kansas City’s downtown area have been repurposed and given new life.
For the first program Annette Thomas, member of the Historic Kansas City Foundation, discusses the transformation of the old Kansas City Public Library (1897-1960) on 9th Street into the Ozark National Life Insurance Building. This was the topic of her 1997 master’s thesis at UMKC.
