A quintessential neighborhood library, the Southeast Branch attracts patrons from both the immediate and surrounding areas who visit for books and computer access and to meet others. It became the permanent home of the Kansas City Digital Media Lab in 2018, giving teens opportunities to explore 3D design, audio and video production, small electronics, and hands-on building.
Look for these icons with each project to help identify how it supports the Library's Next Chapter:
Increase access to materials & programs.
Expand outreach to the community.
Upgrade computers and digital resources.
Renovate and replace aging facilities.
Provide more quality programs, events, and exhibits to our patrons, including the Kansas City Digital Media Lab.
