All the best to Crosby Kemper III! He is a good man to lead this agency but we will miss him in KC. God Bless

See, the Senate CAN do its job, shame they couldn't when Obama was President.

Crosby's transformation of the Kansas City library system and its programming has truly made it another shining example of what is attracting national attention to Kansas City- and the regional residents are better for those opportunities provided under his leadership. A tremendous loss for our community; let's hope he returns home in 4 years. Congratulations and well deserved, Mr. Kemper.

With his family name and personal wealth, starting years ago this man could easily have relaxed on the beach reading great books for the rest of his life. Instead he has used his passion and intellect to give our community a wealth of opportunities through the resources he has built up using the libraries. Thank you CKIII.

Too bad we couldn't have had Crosby as Mayor.

His abilities would be wasted as mayor trying to deal with the crooks and idiots who control the city.
