In a brilliant and creative way to bring in the public, the Kansas City Public Library exterior is striking to say the least.

The library exterior is a large wall that is 25 feet high that has been painted to look like a row of classic novels. The beautiful display showcases novels such as Catch 22, Lord of the Rings, A Tale of Two Cities, Romeo and Juliet and the Republic by Plato. The large art piece is sure to draw many eyes and pedestrians into the library.

With public libraries declining in popularity along with the rise in the internet, this beautiful library exterior works to revitalize some of the interest in reading that has been lost in recent years.
