History of the Central Resource Library

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.

Petitioners and protestors must stay inside the petitioning zone and must not interfere with patrons entering the building. This zone ensures patron safety and prevents sidewalk traffic congestion. The selected placement of the zone maximizes exposure of petitioners to patrons. Petitioners or protesters who cannot abide by these rules will be asked to leave the premises. We appreciate your cooperation. The designated petitioning zone is shaded in green in the diagram. Please notice this zone is located west of the front door.
