KANSAS CITY PUBLIC LIBRARY

The Community Bookshelf [Central Library Parking Garage] is a striking feature of Kansas City’s downtown. It runs along the south wall of the Central Library’s parking garage on 10th Street between Wyandotte Street and Baltimore Avenue. The book spines, which measure approximately 25 feet by 9 feet, are made of signboard mylar. The shelf showcases 22 titles reflecting a wide variety of reading interests as suggested by Kansas City readers and then selected by The Kansas City Public Library Board of Trustees.

It is a long time since I have visited any public libraries.At younger days that was the only asylum.Now,it has shrunken to medical libraries.
You bring back the good memories.Do you frequent this library? And how is the attendance there?
