This year, Library in the Park is all about community. Come celebrate our diverse community, pick up a free book, and talk with organizations that are working to improve the lives and spaces in our community.
There is also a special guest this year. Local author, Derrick Barnes, will be signing free copies of his critically acclaimed picture book
CROWN: An Ode to the Fresh Cut. Illustrated by Gordon C. James, the children's book is a poem Barnes wrote after being inspired by a teen's trip to the barber
Other activities will include a photo booth, face painting, community sticker mural, giant bubbles, book recommendations, live music, and more. Attendees will also get to visit the Mobile Library to sign up for a card and check out items.
Library in the Park will also include a return of the taco competition with local KCK taquerias. Attendees will get a chance to sample tacos
from all four locations and vote on which taco is the best.
Free (including the tacos)
