The 'Little' Big Read
To coincide with the Kansas City Big Read, we have organized activities for youth and families that are inspired by Charles Portis' True Grit. For more information on the Big Read, please visit kcbigread.org.
"Head for the Wild West" book display at the Plaza branch---a very beautiful display for our young readers!
Cowboy and western-themed books are on display at Kansas City Public Library, Central Library, in celebration of the Big Read, "True Grit."
The cowboy loves to sing but gets a bit scared of "creatures" in the barn. This is a hilarious book for kids!
Our North-East Branch put together this display of cowboy books for the the 'Little' Big Read! kcbigread.org
