KANSAS CITY, Mo. — UPDATE - 6/22 | A library spokesperson said the Red Bridge branch will reopen on Wednesday, June 23.

PREVIOUS | The Red Bridge branch of the Mid-Continent Public Library is closed until further notice for HVAC repairs.

A representative for MCPL said the branch would also be undergoing pest control measures as it appears a mouse chewed through some HVAC wiring.
