Beginning today, Mid-Continent Public Library is requiring that all visitors and staff wear a face mask or covering while inside any of its library branches around the metro area. Mid-Continent’s requirement comes after the city of Kansas City announced a face mask mandate in public places starting this week.


Mid-Continent has offered limited in-house services since reopening: use of public computers, in-branch Wi-Fi, copiers, fax machines and printers. Visits are limited to 90 minutes.
