The Kansas City Public Library invites patrons to start Reading Missouri with the 2009 Adult Winter Reading Program which runs January 12 - March 14, 2009. The Show-Me State claims some of the most enduring voices in American Literature, not to mention some of its more provocative contemporary writers. This program complements the exhibit Painting Missouri - featuring original oil paintings representing every county in Missouri and the City of St. Louis. The exhibit is on display at the Central Library starting January 24.
