Central Resource Library Construction FAQs


The main portion of Central Resource Library has been closed since February 2021, and we have all been eagerly awaiting news of reopening. We are excited to announce a reopening date of February 22, 2022! A ribbon cutting ceremony hosted by County Librarian Sean Casserley will be live-streamed on our Facebook page at 2 p.m. that day.

In addition to its public service staff, Central is home to many departments that support all 14 branches. Once the work at Central is complete, you will feel the positive impact across the Library system.

We know you probably have many questions about what to expect, so we’ve put together a Construction FAQ that addresses the status of popular services like the Black & Veatch MakerSpace and Genealogy resources, more details about Little Central and where to find alternate services.

Stay tuned to our blog and @jocolibrary on social media for construction updates and photos.
