County libraries return to regular hours

The Johnson County Library will return to regular hours over the next month after a year of reduced hours and services due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

In-person events, access to children’s toys and the MakerSpace will remain suspended but other services will return to normal by May 3:

April 19

  • Edgerton and De Soto branches return to regular hours of operation.

April 23

  • Branches resume their regular Friday hours.

May 3

  • Regular hours resume at all locations except Cedar Roe.
  • Meeting, conference and study rooms open (bookable after April 28).
  • Newspapers and magazines return.
  • Laptop lending at Lenexa Library available.
  • Soft seating, chairs and tables available.

The library requires face masks or cloth face coverings inside all library branches, while the county’s mask mandate remains in place. This applies to all patrons, volunteers and library staff, unless otherwise exempted.

In addition to masking and social distancing, other safety protocols continue at the library. Hand sanitizer and disinfecting wipes will be available. Staff will clean high-touch surfaces regularly and sanitize buildings daily.

Two library locations are exceptions to the reopening timeline. Renovations April 19 through June 20 will keep the Cedar Roe branch closed. The Central Resource Library will offer limited services as it is upgraded. Check the Cedar Roe and Central Resource Library webpages for details.
