Mrs. Wanda Brown (June 16, 1918 – December 2, 2015) was a longtime benefactor of Cass County Public Library and supporter of the public library in our community. Among other contributions, she donated the funds to expand the children’s area of the Harrisonville library and to create a designated story time area. Below, Harrisonville Branch children’s specialist, Sara Steinmetz, marks Mrs. Brown’s recent passing and commemorates her contributions to the library and the Harrisonville community.Read more
We recently participated in a state-wide project to record and document a typical day in the life of a public library. On that day, library staff members made a special effort to take pictures of anything and everything going on in the library. Our staff took photos of many typical activities – patrons using the wireless internet, children making crafts, a group discussing a book, staff behind the circulation desk, a library courier sorting books in the garage – and posted it all on Facebook with the hashtag #molibraries.Read more

Don’t worry if your child wants to read the same book over and over again! If she enjoys one book, she can learn to enjoy others!Read more
