History of Shawnee Library

History of the Shawnee LibraryThe first Johnson County Library branch opened its doors on June 3, 1953 in the old Dunbar School in Shawnee at 57th and Reeder. Although voters had approved establishing the Library the previous year, no funding was available. The Johnson County Library Committee and the new Library Board organized volunteers to bring library service to the area. In 1955 funding was located and the volunteer libraries were gradually taken over by paid staff. The Shawnee Library moved into rented space a block west of Nieman Road on Johnson Drive. Unfortunately, a budget cut in 1958 required closing the Shawnee Library. For the next 34 years Shawnee would be served from the Antioch Library. Read on »

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 southwest of the entrance by the bike racks on the corner of the building.
