roof terraces

…all I’m hoping is in the future, there’s a beautiful apartment in my name, with a roof terrace big enough for me to relax and watch the sunset every evening. I also hope that my heart is clear, my mind is at peace and my love in somewhere close by.

Location: KANSAS CITY PUBLIC LIBRARY
14 West 10th Street Kansas City, MO 64105

I played tourist in my own city yesterday! Being born and raised in Kansas City, I canNOT believe I’ve never been to the Public Library downtown. They have 5 BEAUTIFUL floors. The top floor has a roof top terrace, and since it used to be a bank almost 100 years ago, they turned the vault in the basement into a movie theater. You actually walk through the vault!!!! How cool is that?.

I’m not even sure where I’d begin to list all of my favorite things about the library, but I’ll start off with the parking garage. It’s called “Community Bookshelf” - It has to be THE COOLEST garage ever!!! The wall is made up of classics 25 feet tall and 9 feet wide and the stairs are books as well with the pages shown.

Some of the classics included are: Romeo and Juliet, Lord of the Rings, A Tale of Two Cities, Charlotte’s Web, To Kill a Mockingbird, The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, Catch-22, Fahrenheit 451, and more.
