A system update is temporarily blocking unlimited access to the Shawnee Mission Post for Library card holders outside of the Library. The Post's support team is investigating a solution to restore remote access, and in the meantime you can still visit any of our Library locations to enjoy unlimited articles. Thanks for your patience!
