Be a Friend and join a non-profit organization dedicated to enhancing the Library through outreach and advocacy efforts. The Friends were formed in 1984 to advocate for a bond issue, which led to the Library's separation from the Kansas City School district and allowed for the branches to be built.

Join the Friends at JazzAlice Oct. 28

jazzaliceJazzAlice features Kansas City jazz legend Angela Hagenbach and a diverse ensemble cast in an original and unique retelling of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. In this version, Alice explores Wonderland while accompanied by the music of John Coltrane (with original lyrics written by Hagenbach).

Hagenbach delivers a perfect pairing, matching the unexpected wonders of Alice author Lewis Carroll's imagination with the improvisational magic of Coltrane's bebop sax in a performance that will delight and entertain audiences of all ages.

This VIP ticket package includes a reserved seat for the performance in the first six rows of the Truman Forum Auditorium and admission for one to a special post-event reception with the JazzAlice cast hosted by the Friends of the Kansas City Public Library.  

All proceeds benefit Books for Babies, a multi-partner initiative designed to present a first book to babies born in the Kansas City area and to train nurses in the importance of early childhood literacy.
