Celebration + Thanks Parade!

TUE | Apr 12 | 5 PM | Library Lawn

National Library Week is April 10-16 and we’re rallying library supporters for a walk to City Hall to say “thank you” for our wonderful library!

As if it couldn’t get any better, Michael and Morris the Monkey from our ridiculously popular Toddler Storytime will play music for our stroll! So, wear your library t-shirt, make a sign telling the City why you love your library, and we’ll provide the flags (red with white dots, of course!) Once we arrive at City Hall, there will be a brief, 5-minute presentation of the library’s annual report and a proclamation from our Mayor.

Help rally support with our Facebook event!

Diverse Dialogues On Race & Culture: The Life of Jimi Hendrix

THU | Mar 10 | 7 PM | Auditorium

“Widely recognized as one of the most creative and influential musicians of the 20th century, Jimi Hendrix pioneered the explosive possibilities of the electric guitar.

His innovative style of combining fuzz, feedback and controlled distortion created a new musical form.”

Join us for a look into Hendrix’s short, yet influential career. Offered in partnership with KU’s Langston Hughes Center.
