History of The Central Resource Library

Since its opening, the Central Resource Library has continued to be re-envisioned by Library staff. Since 1995, it’s seen the creation of an art gallery, a teen services space, and the addition of more than 100 public use PCs. In 2008 the large meeting room was named the Carmack Room in honor of the Johnson County Library’s fourth County Librarian Mona Carmack. Even with all these changes, specialized librarians continue to provide the same expert services they did in 1968 and the Library continues to collect core materials in support of Local History, Genealogy and Business research.

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 west of the front door.
