History of the Antioch Library

History of AntiochAmong the original libraries set up by volunteers was the “Merriam” Library, sometime in 1953.   It was housed in the basement of a residence in the 8500 block of West 55th Terrace.   This library was open just five hours a week, from 4:00 to 7:00 p.m. on Wednesday and from 10:00 a.m. to noon on Saturday.  In 1955, among the first acts of the newly appointed County Librarian was to move this library temporarily to a storefront at 5844 Merriam Drive.  It was renamed “Headquarters”. . .

Petitioning Zone

click to enlarge petioning zone diagramPetitioners 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 to the left. Please notice this zone is located by the third archway from the door.
