home North Kansas City Public Library & High School Media Center

North Kansas City Public Library was founded as a municipal library in 1939. In 2002, North Kansas City remodeled and expanded the Library building. The additional space allowed the Library to join the North Kansas City High School Media Center to create one of the few combined facilities in the country. The Library is governed by a nine-member Board of Trustees. The Library’s revenue is provided primarily through a property tax levy. While North Kansas City has 4,800 residents, North Kansas City Public Library & High School Media Center serves over 18,000 cardholders. The Library offers free library cards to residents of Kansas City’s entire five-county metropolitan area. The Library's collection exceeds 80,000 items. North Kansas City Public Library & High School Media Center is a member of Kansas City Public Library’s Library Service Program (KCPL-LSP). The arrangement allows the Library to share an online catalog with Cass County Public Library, Kansas City Public Library, and twenty other members, including college and university libraries. Membership in KCPL-LSP also provides North Kansas City Public Library & High School Media Center patrons with access through interlibrary loan to over 2.3 million items.
