Colbern Branch Library

The existing Colbern Road Branch will be replaced on the same site with a brand new 33,000-square-foot building (over twice the size of the current branch). The new Colbern Road Branch, which will be the hub for MCPL’s Square One Small Business Services team, is slated to open in late spring 2021 and will include:

  • A new enclosed community room with an operable partition wall that seats up to 240
  • A children’s program room that seats 106
  • 5 smaller collaboration rooms
  • Co-working space for entrepreneurs and small businesses
  • A teen space
  • A coffee shop

This project is part of the Library’s Capital Improvement Plan made possible by funds from Proposition L. The architects are SAPP Design (Springfield & Kansas City, MO) and Helix Architecture and Design, Inc. (Kansas City, MO), and the construction firm for all projects is JE Dunn.
