What’s Your KC Q? Library and KC Star Team Up to Find Answers
What do you want to know about our community? Beginning October 3, the Library and The Kansas City Star are combining resources to find answers to questions about regional topics ranging from the history of barbecue to the stories behind local landmarks. In a new partnership called What’s Your KC Q?, readers submit questions, the public votes on their favorites, and a team of librarians and reporters digs in and reports back with answers.
