In 1985 under the direction of County Librarian Roy Fox, preliminary planning began for a larger building. The Resource Library was renamed the Central Resource Library and Fox began negotiations to construct a new building at College Boulevard and Quivira on property owned by Johnson County Community College. Roy Fox retired in 1988 and newly appointed County Librarian Mona Carmack hired Gould Evans Architects, Inc. of Lawrence, KS to design a Central Resource Library building for the JCCC location.
