The UMKC Libraries have some popular books and DVDs but not large numbers of them so we encourage you to see if you can find what you're looking for by searching the UMKC library catalog. The Health Science Library and Miller Nichols Library also have "take a book, leave a book" shelves for you to exchange books. These books are free to anyone and do not have to be checked out or returned, unless you want to bring them back for someone else to read.

The public libraries in the Kansas City area have loads of fun popular books and DVDs to check out once you sign up for a library card! Library cards at the public library are free to anyone. Pick the public library that is closest to where you live to sign up for a card:
