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!

The Kansas City Public Library plays host to the annual Missouri 5th Congressional District student art exhibit and town hall gathering, where U.S. Rep. Emanuel Cleaver II and his wife, Dianne Cleaver, will recognize local high school artists.

All submissions will be on display at the Central Library from April 22-28, 2014. One will be displayed in the U.S. Capitol in Washington, D.C., for a year, an honor that went to a Lee’s Summit North High School student in 2013.
