Central Resource Library service update

Johnson County Library's Central Resource Library branch will celebrate its reopening on Tuesday, Feb. 22. 

While the majority of work - including improvements to the building's exterior and mechanical, electrical and plumbing systems - is nearly complete, we will spend the next few months returning a construction site to a library, moving back in furnishings, equipment, staff, and, of course, the collection. During this time, you are still welcome to visit the Library at Little Central for holds pickup and returns, public computers and printing. 

A ribbon-cutting ceremony will be held at 2 p.m., on Tuesday, Feb. 22, then head inside to see the wonderful changes Johnson County Facilities, construction partners and staff have implemented, including: 

  • An expanded, relocated kids area with more natural light, window seating and a storytime room
  • A new drive-thru for returns and holds pick-up 
  • More study and conference rooms, including a dedicated media room with flexible seating
  • Upgrades to the Black & Veatch MakerSpace 

There are also many updates you may not see on the surface but will experience when using the Library, such as a reorganization of  staff spaces, a new materials sorter and improvements to the delivery dock. As the "hub" of the Johnson County Library system, these improvements at Central will help get materials into your hands more quickly and efficiently, regardless of which branch you visit.
