"Little Central" Opens Monday, Feb. 15

Little Central will open in a portion of our front lobby on Monday, February 15, offering limited services.

Services available at Central during construction include:

  • Holds pick-up and self-check.
  • Materials return inside the building (for exterior book drops, we recommend patrons use a nearby location such as Oak Park, Leawood, or Corinth).
  • Nine public PCs
  • Public printing / copying / scanning
  • Access to public restrooms
  • Community information, including tax forms

Modified services during construction:

  • The Black & Veatch Makerspace. The Makerspace staff are working temporarily at another location and offering online programming. We anticipate bringing them back to Central in summer 2021, depending on construction and/or public health conditions at that time.
  • The Genealogy desk will continue to offer virtual hours for patron access. Many online databases will continue to be available remotely.
