Baristas and a Book

Baristas Grind outside the entrance to the Plaza Library


I’m one of those people who say they love the library but almost never go. Part of the reason I don’t go that often is because libraries don’t seem as inviting as say, a Barnes and Noble. At the library you can’t just grab a coffee from the cafe and then find a nook to read for hours.

At least not at the Johnson Country libraries I belonged to or at any of Wyandotte’s libraries. But things are different on the Missouri side. Both the Plaza Branch and the Downtown branch of KCMO’s libraries have cafes. Feeling the need to catch up on some reading, I paid a visit to see how integrated the coffee shops are to the library.
