MCPL's Virtual Events

Although Mid-Continent Public Library’s branches remain closed, its Virtual Branch is always available! With your Access Pass (Library card), you have access to hundreds of online resources that offer information on everything from how to foster your child’s early literacy skills to how to start a business.

In addition, MCPL recently began streaming “virtual events” on its social media pages, so that customers can stay connected while they practice social distancing.
