Dedication: December 9, 2022
Green Hills Library Center, located at 8581 N. Green Hills Rd., Kansas City, Mo., is now open! The Library broke ground on the new building on July 15, 2021, and opened to the public on September 9, 2022. The newly built branch serves as a replacement for the Library’s former Boardwalk Branch. Visit the Locations page to see Green Hills’ hours.
Located inside Green Hills, the MCPL Culinary Center will open in 2023. Upon opening, the Culinary Center—the first of its kind in the region—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 center will feature commercial kitchen space available for local food-based businesses.
