About Kansas City Public Library - Plaza

On the southern side of the Country Club Plaza, overlooking Brush Creek, the Plaza Branch offers a beautiful setting that is home to the state-of-the-art Truman Forum Auditorium, a beautifully appointed space built for large presentations. The Cohen Conference Center with its large windows is perfect for receptions or mid-size presentations. The Turner Meeting Room works well as a green room for presenters using the Truman Auditorium or as a small meeting venue.
