Lucile Bluford isn’t just Kansas City’s treasure. The state of Missouri has officially seen to that. Saturday, July 1, marked the first statewide observance of Lucile Bluford Day per a Missouri House measure signed into law a year ago. The Library joined in the commemoration – on what would have been Bluford’s 106th birthday – with a day of events and exhibits at its L.H. Bluford Branch, 3050 Prospect.
 
Indisposable was a pop-up exhibit featured at Central Library from June 2-9, 2017. The idea for it came from the monthly Coffee and Conversation put on by members of the Outreach AmeriCorps VISTAs. Indisposable featured photographs taken by patrsons experiencing homelessness. 
 
The Irish playwright, Oscar Wilde, was especially known for his witty control of and deft use of the English language, and nowhere does he demonstrate this facility with English better than in the play, The Importance of Being Earnest.  The title itself, with its pun on “earnest” and “Ernest,” with all its characters often very “earnest,” but not always or consistently truthful, gives a hint to the reader and viewer what craziness will ensue.
