Merriam Plaza Library Construction FAQ

Join us for the Slater St. Storybook Relay!

Saturday, March 02, 2024, 10:00am–12:00pm at Merriam Plaza Library. We need at least 300 volunteers to pass the final set of books from the front door of Antioch Library down Slater St. to the new Merriam Plaza branch!

The 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! Plans for a new Library, located just a few blocks away on the campus of the Merriam Community Center, have been in development with the City of Merriam for several years. Construction is now underway and the Merriam Plaza Library's ribbon cutting is scheduled for Wednesday, March 20 at 9 a.m.

We know you probably have questions about what to expect during the building process, so we’ve put together an FAQ that addresses more details about the project.

Stay tuned to our website and follow @jocolibrary on social media for project updates and photos. You can also drop us a line if you have any questions.
