Visiting Kansas and took many, many pictures of interesting libraries including the Children’s Departments in Manhattan, Topeka, and Bonner Springs. We also peeked through the windows of the soon-to-open new Lenexa branch in Johnson County.
Manhattan Public. Like the outdoor space, graphic signs, and face-out picture book shelving.
Topeka & Shawnee County Public Library. Amazing art, love how the picture books are divided by topic and are face-out. The aquarium is uber-cool, too.
Bonner Springs – love the sight-lines, trains, and natural stone and wood and fireplace.
Sneak Peek through the windows of the new Lenexa branch. Nice, modern furniture but with touches of natural wood and great graphics.
