Liberty library closes for move

Liberty's new branch is slated to be located along the east side of Withers Road near the Liberty Community Center. It is approximately a mile south of the current location across from Liberty Academy. The branch is slated to open by the end of September.

LIBERTY — The existing Mid-Continent Library branch in Liberty, 1000 Kent St., will close at 4 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 30, to prepare to move to its new location.

The new branch, the Withers Branch, named in honor of the Withers family as they secured its location at 1665 S. Withers Road, about a mile south of the Kent Street location in Liberty, will open by the end of September.
