I recently discovered an interesting link on the mymcpl.org website. From the home page you can access Online Resources. In this section you can choose Web Resources where there is a Kansas City Area link.

Mention "The Holidays," and everyone instantly knows what you're talking about. You aren't referring to Easter or Halloween or Flag Day. A lot of holidays take place this time of year, and we sometimes have a tendency to mentally lump them together. For me, things seem to speed up when Thanksgiving hits. Christmas is here before I know it, and New Year’s is right on its heels. This time of year can definitely be a cause for stress, but the arrival of the Holidays also brings with it a kind of solace. Food, family, friends, and faith! We've worked hard all year.
The vision of the Kauffman Center is to enrich the lives of everyone in the community through extraordinary and diverse performing arts experiences. The Center will be home to resident organizations, the Kansas City Ballet, Lyric Opera, and the Kansas City Symphony. The Muriel Kauffman Theatre will feature pop and country entertainers, Broadway productions, comedy shows, and more.
There are 1,800 seats designed in a semicircle configuration that brings audiences closer to the performers. The design was inspired by the great opera houses of Europe.
I have never liked history in text books, but I have really learned a lot about Kansas City’s history since a friend and I discovered the Freedom Mall. It is located at 1009 W. 8th St.in Kansas City, Missouri.
One highlights of the holiday season in Excelsior Springs is the Festival of Trees on display at the Hall of Waters. Local businesses decorate a tree for you to enjoy, and for the first time, we at the Excelsior Springs Branch have a tree in the festival.
This year, Chinese New Year is on Jan. 23, 2012. Chinese New Year is one of the most important Chinese holidays. In China, it is called the Spring Festival. It begins on the first day of the first month of the traditional Chinese calendar and ends on the 15th day.
Each day is celebrated in a different, significant way: including dinners, gifts, worship, and dancing. The celebration ends on the 15th day with the Lantern Festival. Rice dumplings and soup are eaten this day, and lanterns are lit outside the homes to guide spirits home.
I have been called a lot of things in my life, but art connoisseur is not one of them. This being I said, I recently purchased my first piece of art at an auction. I was so thrilled to buy art! Original Art! Now granted, I had enjoyed two complimentary glasses of champagne, but that’s not what loosened my wallet. I simply saw something I liked, it was going for a reasonable price, and I wanted to have it on my wall. My wife definitely wanted it on the wall. Anything to replace my prized Homer Simpson mirror (She hates that thing…can’t imagine why).
