Our society is constantly on the go. With school and soccer practice, plus trying to squeeze in dinner, family, social gatherings, and homework in there too, we're left with little to no time for ourselves. My real question is -- "Have you ever gone to your local Mid-Continent Public Library for "you" time?". We often think of our local libraries as a place merely for resources to use for homework or research. As a college student, I've often thought the same thing.
Coming Soon To the Excelsior Springs Branch: KC's Best Kept Jazz Secret!!!
In honor of Jazz Appreciation Month, we have a special treat for you. The talented jazz musician Millie Edwards will be at the library with some fellow musicians. She is considered one of Kansas City's best kept jazz secrets, and this will be her third performance at the Excelsior Springs Branch. This program promises to be a warm and fun experience for people of all ages.
Geocaching (say "gee-oh-cash-ing") is relatively new, in fact, I've never tried it myself. The first documented geocache was placed on May 3, 2000. Basically, it entails using GPS (global positioning system) coordinates to find a certain location. At each registered location, there is a surprise waiting! Each location includes a logbook, which allows visitors to leave their mark, a message, or a gift.
