Did you find the Beyond the Books magazine included in your Kansas City Star a couple of weeks ago? Maybe, you have seen this colorful magazine on a table at your local library branch. Beyond the Books is a publication by Mid-Continent Public Library to inform patrons of the many programs the library offers.
On a visit with family in Lawrence, Kansas, we decided to visit the Nordic Festival. The first table we saw was the Midwest Genealogy Center. Manned by a faithful volunteer, the table attracted many people asking questions about starting their family genealogy.
Since I have grandchildren, I want everyone to know what a wonderful resource the library is for children. I love checking out books to read to them. There's a great Summer Reading Program every year for them to take advantage of and many programs.
