I posted this photo of the most excellent Kansas City Library last year... but at the time, I wasn't clear on what book titles made up the building's facade. Here's that list!
Apparently, these books were chosen on the basis of their relation to Missouri. That's why there's a biography of Harry Truman, the anthology of Kansas City Stories, and a trilogy dealing with the orcs found in the region (namely, Lord of the Rings.)
The library has its own Flickr account, BTW, which is loads of fun to go through. Take a look!
