It also contains other notable structures not listed on the National Register.History of the Library DistrictOriginally developed as a commercial and entertainment area in the 1880s, the Library District took its new name in 2003 in connection with the move of the Kansas City Public Library's Central Branch to the former headquarters of the First National Bank of Kansas City, presently the Central Library. At the same time, many commercial office buildings nearby were converted to loft apartment residences and the City of Kansas City initiated major streetscape improvements within the district. Together, these changes established a distinctive character for the neighborhood.Distinctive featuresThe Library District has a walking tour guide available through the Kansas City Public Library's website.
