Branch make-over makes Prospect number one among libraries
The Bluford branch of the Kansas City Public Library used to be a pretty depressing place. The building sits across the street from a dying strip mall with cracked windows and vacant storefronts. Tucked between Prospect and Wabash, it faces a row of dilapidated houses begging for demolition. Inside, the drab design contained as much color and atmosphere as a run-down dentist’s office.
But, now that the $1.3 million renovation is complete, Bluford should make Brooksiders who frequent the posh Plaza branch envious of folks on the East Side.
