"All Together Now" is the Summer Reading theme, so we put TOGETHER a new zine and it's ALL ready NOW.
At 19,091 unique titles, the Kansas City Public Library’s collection of movies and television shows is larger than any streaming service’s offering. In January 2023, Statista reported that Amazon Prime had 7,429, Netflix 7,318, Hulu 6,741, and Discovery+ 6,203. Every other service had fewer.
Altogether, the system’s 10 locations house a total of 52,340 discs with over 30,000 located at Central Library.
The Library continues to collect DVDs for numerous reasons, including: many people don’t have access to the tech that’s needed to stream video; streaming services fall short in terms of diversity of interest; need for better inclusion of groups by race and age; and availability of titles.
Stop by select Kansas City parks and visit with your Library for this year's Pop In at the Park summer series! We'll be popping up in local neighborhoods between June 6 - August 18, 2023, to provide summer learning resources to families, connect people with services, offer fun kids’ activities, and more!
