Green Hills Library Center

rendering of the Green Hills Branch

Groundbreaking: July 15, 2021

Opening: Summer 2022

The Green Hills Library Center will be the home of the first public library culinary literacy center in the region that will help people learn about food preparation, nutrition, and food culture. It will also provide culinary-based programming to teach reading, math, science, and other subjects in a commercial kitchen with classroom seating. In addition, the branch will feature two health department-certified kitchens available for local food-based businesses.

The branch is located at 8549 North Green Hills Road, Kansas City, Mo, and is targeted for completion in summer 2022. Once it opens, it will serve as a replacement for the Library’s current Boardwalk Branch at 8656 N. Ambassador Drive, Kansas City, Mo. The Boardwalk Branch will remain open until construction is complete.
