We worked hard building a better world this summer and now it’s time to PARTY! As Summer Reading draws to a close, let’s celebrate in style before everyone heads back to school.
On Thursday, Aug 3 from 7-9 PM on the Library Lawn, grab your dancing shoes and bring your best moves for Mundo Nouvo, Kansas City’s Latin and Caribbean music sensation.
We’ll have free Kettle Corn, but bring some dollars for Coney Island Hot Dogs and Free State beer. There will also be a LEGO free-build for all ages and we’ll debut our Summer Reading-inspired Rube Goldberg machine.
With the 2016 Summer Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro this year, we’re featuring a spectacular Brazilian martials arts group, Axé Capoeira Kansas City, who promises to bring high energy and Brazilian culture, music, and dance! Come out for family fun, crafts, light snacks, and beverages.
LPL is so proud of every kid, teen, and adult who exercised their minds and finished Summer Reading. Great work, everyone!
On Saturday, February 27 at 7 PM, come mingle with Martians in the new library with stellar special guests, heavenly appetizers, drinks in the Venus Lounge, space music from the SOUND+VISION studio, and our famous themed basket fundraiser.
Get your tickets here! More info is here. Cocktail attire. All proceeds support your public library.
