The Kansas City Library in Kansas City, Missouri is a fun break from the historical buildings listed above, but the craftsmanship deserves recognition. We think this is such a clever way to design a library, and the work itself is well done. This exterior features 22 books that are 25 feet by 9 feet. When roaming around Kansas City, this building will definitely round up some visitors.
