The Kansas City Public Library is making strides to safely offer our services
and resources to the public in the midst of the COVID pandemic. To follow social distancing guidelines and ensure the
health and safety of Library patrons and staff,
many of our in-person services are now appointment based.
You must sign up in advance to reserve an appointment for your desired service. Patrons are limited to one session per service per day in order to accommodate as many people as we safely can. Not all locations offer the same services;
please visit your preferred location's page to see which services they offer at this time.
We require all patrons over the age of two to wear a mask, covering both your mouth and nose, while in the library. We are also requiring social distancing of at least six feet between people. If you need to interact with staff, please stand in front of the plexiglass screens.
