Throwback Thursday!

As you continue to explore our Summer Reading theme, A Universe of Stories, we encourage you to navigate your rocket ship to the nearest wormhole or crack in the space/time continuum and trek back to 1956!

There you'll find our then temporary headquarters on Merriam Drive. We're talking way before Monticello and long before Lenexa City Center Library! Does history repeat itself? That poster those children are gathered around sure seems to say so! The Summer Reading theme in 1956? Your Ticket to the Moon!
