For more than a century, the Kansas City Stockyards fed a nation hungry for fresh meat. The heyday of the stockyards is long gone, undermined by flood, environmental concerns, and shifting economics. But this powerful financial engine is celebrated in Cowtown: History of the Kansas City Stockyards, a new exhibition of photographs, blueprints, drawings, and documents culled from more than 5,000 items retrieved from a Livestock Exchange Building storeroom in 2008.

In the Midnight Library, a little librarian helps all the animals find the perfect book. The library is always peaceful and quiet until one night when some squirrels, a wolf, and a tortoise stir up a little trouble.
Luckily, the little librarian knows just how to turn a little trouble into a lot of fun.
