Watch Something Super!

One of my favorite parts of summer is the blockbuster movies, particularly the superhero movies. This summer's first superhero movie was Avengers: Age of Ultron.

Podcast Ponderings: Ready to Get Wild?

Kansas City native Samantha Fish released her third blues album in early July, and for me, that means updating playlists and adjusting my usual podcast rotation for any interviews with Samantha Fish that might be out there. Luckily, a guitar aficionado podcast, Amps and Axes, fit the bill. The hosts, Jeff Bober and Mick Marcellino, interviewed Ms. Fish in April after the new album was recorded, and she was prepping for the release. 

Access Is Now Faster at our Red Bridge Location!

Great news -- our Red Bridge Branch, located at 11140 Locust St., Kansas City, MO 64131, is the first branch in the Mid-Continent Public Library system to get Google Fiber installed. This was made possible by Google and the City of Kansas City donating the connection to the Library system.
