You're invited to join the Kansas City Local Library Exchange!

Several local libraries have collaborated to bring the metro KC area a low-cost professional development experience open to all types of libraries (academic, public, school, or special) and their staff (librarians, paraprofessional staff, and other library specialists).

Watch the video below for a brief introduction to the program.


Individuals should click on Visit a Library if you personally have an interest in:

  • Learning about alternate approaches to library services.
  • Meeting and networking with peers in other libraries.
  • Exploring new library locations.

Your library should consider Hosting an Exchange Visit if you have an interest in:

  • Providing your staff with a low-cost way to research an operation, process, or program at another library.
  • Encouraging your staff to network with colleagues who have similar interests.
  • Promoting greater communication and cooperation between local libraries.
