TKC BREAKING NEWS!!! KANSAS CITY PUBLIC LIBRARY DEBUTS NEW WEBSITE AMID PROPERTY TAX INCREASE PUSH!!!
Down ballot from the Hillary Vs. Trump slap fight, Kansas City residents will be asked to to further fund the library and approve a 8-cent property tax levy increase.
Consider . . .
GIVEN HIS SUPPORT OF PUBLIC LIBRARY FUNDING and this nearby Mid-Continent Public Library tax ask. . . This one kinda puts tax fighter and KC Library Honcho Crosby Kemper III a tough spot since he's always undercutting other taxing efforts. Credit where it's due . . . This is for a good cause . . . Or is it???
A few quick Sunday thoughts about funding the Kemper Legacy with Kansas City Tax Dollars and libraries in general . . .
- The Internets and not the library is now the source for all information and time wasting.
- E-books are cheap and more convenient for casual readers and a little online searching will yield the answer to just about every question along with a variety of options to have Chinese toddlers do the homework of horrible American students.
- Should Kansas City really fund a place dedicated to helping hobos hang out all day, watch porn on the old school computers, make BM and wash their undercarriage in the sink??? Doesn't Barnes & Noble already serve that purpose for the most part???
Today's Sunday question . . .
HAS THE KANSAS CITY PUBLIC LIBRARY OUTLIVED ITS USEFULNESS IN THE AGE OF THE INTERNETS WHEREIN A MOBILE PHONE IS THE GATEWAY TO ALL THE WORLD'S INFO?!?!
We ask this question not only to possibly save Kansas City homeowners about 20 bucks a year but also to prove that the Show-Me Institute has never sent TKC a check and only a truly independent news-ish outlet would be so bold (and jerky) as to question library funding which is a sacred cow in the classic Oprah-esque sense of the term.
Nevertheless . . .
WE'RE STILL HAPPY ABOUT THE NEW LIBRARY WEb UPDATE @ KCLIBRARY.ORG MAKING ITS DEBUT FIRST HERE ON TKC WITH THIS SUNDAY LINK!!!
Even better . . . Check this nice video chronicling the transformation of the KC Public Library web presence.
From our favorite local book worms: "Ever wonder what our previous websites looked like? Take a moment to join us for a trip down memory lane, going back....waaaayyyy back. Then visit the new kclibrary.org and enjoy what we've become! Read more about the changes here . . ."
Kudos on the website update . . . Which is nice but only a sign that something needed to be fixed in the first place.
And while the rest of the world uses Google or Wolframalpha for their information needs it's nice to know that an avowed Kansas City tax fighter now becomes tax enthusiast for the benefit of freeloaders and his public identity.
You decide . . .
