MCPL boasts a wide range of resources, from eBooks to classes on beginning genealogy. One resource that is often underestimated and overlooked here at the North Oak Branch, however, is our donated paperback books.
The Lee's Summit Branch is helping to increase the communities' access to books through a new initiative called "The Paperback Swap Box." The Library will be giving boxes of paperback books to different hospitals, offices, coffee shops, and organizations to place in waiting rooms. Simply pick a paperback that you find interesting and start reading. Don't worry if you don't finish your book, just take the book with you. Once you are done with it, return it to another paperback swap box or to your local branch.
