Kansas City’s Community Bookshelf

Kansas City Public Library's Community Bookshelf

If you haven’t seen a photograph of the Kansas City (Missouri) Public Library’s Community Bookshelf, here it is.

How wonderful.

Here’s how they describe it: “The Community Bookshelf is a striking feature of Kansas City’s downtown. It runs along the south wall of the Central Library’s parking garage on 10th Street between Wyandotte Street and Baltimore Avenue. The book spines, which measure approximately 25 feet by 9 feet, are made of signboard mylar. The shelf showcases 22 titles reflecting a wide variety of reading interests as suggested by Kansas City readers and then selected by The Kansas City Public Library Board of Trustees.”

For a listing of the titles displayed, each accompanied by a brief synopsis, see the Community Bookshelf web page noted above, where you’ll also find a number of additional interesting views of the Bookshelf.
