Friends Bookstores Reopening

The Friends of Johnson County Library Bookstores are re-opening to help meet your gently-used books and A/V needs! The bookstores at Antioch, Blue Valley and Central Resource Libraries are now open for appointment-only shopping.

Store hours at all three locations are Mondays from 9am-4:30pm and Thursdays from Noon-7:30pm. Bookstore pricing has been standardized to make it easier to shop and to perform contact-less sales. Some items like display books, and sets, are specially priced.

The Friends are extending their member discount all Summer. Members get 20% off prices as marked, until Labor Day!

The Friends look forward to welcoming you back to the Bookstores. To shop at Antioch or Central Resource Library Bookstores, contact Becky Epperson. To shop at Blue Valley Library Bookstore, contact Karin Dembinski.

Some appointment-only shopping details:

  • 24 hours advance appointment
  • 30 minutes for browsing
  • 4 customers limit for low-contact book shopping
  • Face coverings are required in public places in Johnson County, Kansas. Wear yours to the Bookstore!
  • No membership necessary! 

The Stores have been deep-cleaned, along with the Libraries. The generous-hearted Bookstore volunteers are being trained on new physical distancing and daily store hygiene measures. Plexiglas partitions have been placed at cash register stations in each bookstore, and six foot “distancing” floor markings have been deployed. Face coverings are required in public places in Johnson County, Kansas. Wear yours to the Bookstore!

The Friends do not currently accept book donations at the branches. If you have donations, give a call to the Friends Operations Manager, Shanta Dickerson, to arrange drop off at our headquarters. 913 492 4791
