This is not my picture- but husband just called, made me put it on video phone, and walked up and down the block to show me this amazing library and I really want to go to Kansas City now.

I never thought I would need to go to Kansas City but here we are

Um...I live here, I like books (I probably have a stack of 20 to read don’t judge...) and have never heard of this library but you best believe imma be in that bitch sometime. BET!

image

I’m bout to head out there and see what this is all about. ETA 16 minutes. I deadass threw on some clothes and was just like fuck it let’s go. Gotta hurry, it closes at 5!

imageimage

I deadass walked around the wrong building but, we out here!

image

I worked up damn sweat walking out here but fuck it!

image

Here’s the front door...

imageimageimage image

This is right when you walk inside. Some punk ass dude said he was going to photo bomb me. I invited him to take a picture, but he was like nah bruh.

imageimageimage image

A little lounge area, a cafe, elevators and stairs for those who want them! Its legit!

Taking a stroll on the second floor now! We have some artwork, some videos!

imageimageimage image

They have a place for kids and teens too on the second floor! It’s dope! They do say though that as an adult I couldn’t use the bathroom. They don’t want those problems! Kids was in there playing some Area 51 game? They got a spot for toddlers to chill! They got that little area like you see at the doctors office where kids can go and kill time. But kids play on iPhones and shit now tho but it’s still dope!

imageimageimage imageimageimage imageimageimage

3rd floor now. This place is friendly for those who are homeless. They got WiFi in here! Individual tables with outlets to charge your shit! Very very quiet in here since it is a library...duh K! Caught a young dude in here going over his football highlight tape. 18 years old, doesn’t know where he’s going to school, says he plays linebacker and running back. He was blasting on his highlight tape. He said his favorite player was Marshawn Lynch, just like mine!!! Also got a lil spot to watch tv! Onto the 4th and last floor...

imageimageimage imageimageimage imageimageimage

Restroom is also on the 3rd floor too! Heads up!

4th and final floor now. It’s more secluded than the other three floors but they got books for years in this bitch! They got little study areas for people who want to chill and be by themselves. Whatever you want! Fiction, non fiction and everything in between!

imageimageimage imageimageimage imageimage

Back on the first floor! If you go straight ahead from the entrance you’ll enter this other lil study hall area. They got more places to chill! They got iPads and computers and shit you can use! This is a dope ass public library. If you in the KC area and wanna check out a book...bring yo ass over here! They gotchu! If yo ass need to study for a test...come park yo dumbass over here and study!

imageimageimage imageimage

I hope you all enjoyed the tour! Thanks to @jewleshasbadideas and @downtostars (I hope that’s the right name...) for bringing this to my attention! I’m hungry and I’m starting to smell a lil musty, working up a sweat doing all this walking... With this last pic...I’m out!

“You’ve been warned: Remy Cameron is coming for your heart. I adored this tender, heartfelt love song of a book.“ — BECKY ALBERTALLI, author of Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda

Everyone on campus knows Remy Cameron. He’s the out-and-proud, super-likable guy who friends, faculty, and fellow students alike admire for his cheerful confidence. The only person who isn’t entirely sure about Remy Cameron is Remy himself. Under pressure to write an A+ essay defining who he is and who he wants to be, Remy embarks on an emotional journey toward reconciling the outward labels people attach to him with the real Remy Cameron within.

From the author of the bestselling novel Running With Lions, a story about overcoming the labels that try to define our lives.
