Timeless and Unforgettable...like your Library

Johnson County Library is the place for books. Old books. New books. Classic books. Unforgettable books. Books that make you think. With the help of Barkley Advertising Agency, the Johnson County Library's courier trucks have been redeisgned to resemble the delivery trucks of some of literature's most famous characters. Barkley's generous pro bono designs remind us of the iconic nature of these books. These books will always be relevant. Just like these classic books, Libraries are icons of American society--today and tomorrow. Captain Ahab's Fine Seafood...Available at the Johnson County LibraryHappy reading!
