Your Investment. Your Library. Your Community.
Delivering on a Promise to Voters:
See what we’ve accomplished during the first 13 years of the KCLS Capital Improvement Plan: 16 new libraries have opened, 11 libraries have been expanded, 14 libraries have been renovated, and two parking expansion projects have been completed, in addition to many other enhancements throughout the System.
With less than a year remaining of the building program, KCLS is committed to completing the remaining two projects in the Capital Improvement Plan.Prior to the passage of the $172 million Capital Bond in 2004, which was strongly supported by residents, the Capital Improvement Plan was developed through extensive community outreach, involvement and discussion. The Capital Improvement Plan includes improvements for all KCLS libraries.
Although rising construction costs necessitated modifications to some library improvement projects in the past, the construction environment is favorable for completing the remaining two projects.
