Kansas City Public Library Garage Concealed by Giant Wall of Books

The Kansas City Public Library

The parking garage for the Kansas City Public Library is partially concealed by the giant book spines of the Community Bookshelf.

The Community Bookshelf is a striking feature of Kansas City’s downtown. It runs along the south wall of the Central Library’s parking garage on 10th Street between Wyandotte Street and Baltimore Avenue. The book spines, which measure approximately 25 feet by 9 feet, are made of signboard mylar. The shelf showcases 22 titles reflecting a wide variety of reading interests as suggested by Kansas City readers and then selected by The Kansas City Public Library Board of Trustees.
