The Kansas City Public Library invites patrons to start Reading Missouri
with the 2009 Adult Winter Reading Program which runs January 12 - March 14, 2009. The Show-Me State claims some of the most enduring voices in American Literature, not to mention some of its more provocative contemporary writers. This program complements the exhibit Painting Missouri
- featuring original oil paintings representing every county in Missouri and the City of St. Louis. The exhibit is on display at the Central Library starting January 24.

that helped put Missouri on the cultural map.
