Imagine Your New Library

Johnson County Library is excited to have begun the design process for the new Library in Merriam. And we want to hear from YOU!

The current Antioch Library has been a fixture in the Merriam community for over 60 years; staff and patrons alike have many fond memories of the building – some having visited Antioch their entire lives.

The new building will be located just a few blocks away on the campus of the Merriam Community Center. This summer we are developing the design for the replacement Library with an eye toward the future, ensuring we are able to meet the changing needs of the community over time. 

The first public input session will be held online Wednesday, May 19, from 6 – 7:30 p.m.

Additional dates for public input sessions will be announced on and @jocolibrary on social media. Construction is anticipated to occur after the design is finalized with completion in 2023.

We are excited to hear how we can continue to serve the community for years to come.
