Special Limited Services

KCPL Reopening Update

KCPL will reopen on Mon., Jan. 11, offering curbside services throughout the library system. Although buildings will remain closed to the public until Feb. 28, all locations will offer KCPL curbside service starting Jan. 11th, except for the Main Branch location at the Charleston Town Center.

The Town Center branch will provide special limited services at its location on level two, near Talbot’s. Patrons will be able to pick up reserved items at the location but will not be permitted to enter or browse.

KCPL curbside service allows patrons to contact their local branch to reserve books, movies, and other materials. Patrons are then able to arrange a time to pick up the requested items without having to enter the building.

Contact your local KCPL branch for more information. During this period, all KCPL online services will still be available for patron use online.
