The Woodneath Library Center, open in 2013, serves residents in the Kansas City area and welcomes out of town visitors seeking complimentary Wi-Fi. The Library, part of Mid-Continent Public Library, hosts free programs for residents and visitors on a wide variety of topics including presentations by nationally recognized authors, writing and storytelling seminars, storytimes for families, history programs, technology instruction, and much more. The Library is named for the wooded area surrounding this lush, 33 acre farmland called the Woodneath Estate which was built by Elbridge Arnold in 1855-56 as a family homestead and farm. One of Mid-Continent Public Library's signature initiatives, The Story Center, is housed in the historic homestead on the property. Woodneath Library Center is conveniently located 2 minutes west on Highway 152 off I-35 15 minutes north of Kansas City.
