The Plaza Loves Our Readers, Grand Opening Event!
The drop-in event will last from 12:00-3:00 p.m. and will feature readings, music, tours, and more! Notable Kansas City residents and other special guests will read stories and poems each hour, local folk trio Tiny Escalators will perform, and, of course, librarians will be on hand to provide personalized reading recommendations!
So come listen and enjoy some light refreshments while exploring our newly reimagined library and services! You may have seen some changes taking shape. Now, the last shelf has been moved, the last computer replaced, and our materials have been tagged for RFID checkout – and that means it’s time to party!
