From the Library Director
The Mid-Continent Public Library consists of 34 branches serving Clay, Jackson, and Platte Counties in Western Missouri. It was established in 1965 and is now one of the largest library systems in the United States. Financed by your tax dollars it provides you with one of the finest library resources in the nation.
The system contains over 3 million books which are made available to all library users through an elaborate communication system and daily delivery service. This is true also for extensive collections of compact discs, video cassettes, audio cassettes and books on cassette. The Midwest Genealogy Center is a nationally recognized genealogical resource center.
We invite you to join nearly half a million fellow citizens who have a Mid-Continent library card. We also invite your comments, criticisms, or requests for additional information that will help us serve you better.
Steven V. Potter, Library Director and C.E.O.
