Learn Skills. Be Awesome.
DIY is the best way for kids to learn new skills, meet others who share the same passions, and generally be awesome. We'll be using DIY in the library to explore new subjects while practicing skills. Kids can browse thousands of projects, try them and keep a portfolio of what they make and do.

Go to diy.org and sign up with your kid!

Film critics regard 1939 as the greatest year in Hollywood history, when more memorable movies were released than at any other time. Throughout 2014, the Kansas City Public Library recreates the movie going experience enjoyed by audiences 75 years earlier. Each week, the free series Hollywood’s Greatest Year will present a movie from 1939.

Figures from history come to life in May's lineup of Hollywood bio-pics.

In the Stanley H. Durwood Film Vault, Central Library, 14 W. 10th St.
