Are you ready for some football? To mark the beginning of football season, our staff at the Platte City Branch has created a display of football related library materials.

All of our display items are available for checkout. So, stop by and pick something up today.
It's that time of year again! Yep, school is starting. Be sure to include “mymcpl.org” as part of their school supplies. Our website includes hundreds of research databases, many in areas such as science, history, and geography.
Summer vacations are over, and the fall programming season has begun at the Grandview branch. Every month we have programs for literally all ages, from babies to adults, and every age in between. I'm not sure everyone knows about the programs we offer for adults. At the library, we believe people should never stop learning and we like to offer as many different opportunities for learning as we can at every age, including adults.
