Mid Continent Library has always been a staple in the Blue Springs Community. It has offered resources not only book related, but it can be your local printing station, host events for pre-schoolers and offer access to computers with the internet. In 2018, the newly remodeled building offers all that but to the max. Now there are private rooms for group studies and even individual cubes for those needing to catch up on some work. I haven't even gotten to the selection of books, the library now offers a system to really help you narrow down your book needs simply by walking up to one of many monitors and it walks you through everything.
