sounds very qualified.

crosby was unique, of course, and gave a great gift to the city in making the library what it is today.

now that it's a body in motion with inertia, it should be manageable by a competent person.

This is an example of what white privilege is. Their is NO need for KC public library system. The area has the Mid-Continent Library system, KC should be part if the system. Media all the time talks KC One. What a waste $175,000.

It wont ever be Crosby inspired. Here we go with the disconnected, suburban White dude in charge. Boring. Predictable and bad for the library.
