Kansas City Public Library Needs Cash

The fight over scarce local tax resources continues as this public warehouse for 2012's latest tech and hobos escaping the elements makes an important ask for its survival: Library proposal could lead to new facilities, increase in property taxes

If the TIF Commission would just quit stealing money from the Library it would have all the cash it needs.

WOW< I thought all KC needed was a two mile trolley train, new downtown luxury tax abated condominiums, more money thrown into the 18th and Vine pit, and giving the Zoo a new aquarium. Just where do basic services fit into Kansas City's list of priorities.

^^^Exactly! Do they have no shame?
Can't wait till I can leave this money grabbing entity they call a City.
Next we will need new cars for the Mayor, an updated office, and then the council offices, and then the lunch room, then ...
it's so disheartening

Toy Book store! If people wanted libraries so bad, private business would build them. Books are 15th century technology. No one goes to them. It's just a hobo shelter. Back will rob you if you go there. Google has replaced libraries. Mid Continent mostly builds libraries in white neighborhoods for white folk too scared to go to Barnes and Noble. This is a magazine town. Why should I be taxed for a library system that only builds libraries in the suburbs? Libraries steal sewers and firemen and cops. I live in Kansas, but I should get to vote on this because I bought dinner at Sarpinos and paid KC taxes on it. Hipsters and gays read. They should make everyone who checks out books pay for it by charging for book rentals, and if it can't support itself too bad. I have a picture of an empty library, proving that no one ever goes to them.

First of all, you are talking out the side of your neck. To be continued momentarily...

10:07 AM All Kansas City needed was a new East Patrol police station and crime lab. Then it was a free for all grocery store, namely Sunfresh, which has blighted the northland corner of Vivian and Antioch (but it's in White world so its alright.) Then it internets for every!. Then cash for the toy train. Then cash for 18th Vine. If you follow the cash, you see the same names over and over and over again. When they make plans without me, they're not planning for me.

This is NOT Kansas City Public Library. Mid-Continent--different system--read your stories, Tony, please before you mislead your readers. And Mr. 2:00 have you been to a library lately? I could go nuts reading your falsehoods. I think I already have. Buh-bye!
