This Week at the Library

Johnson County Library locations are closed Monday, Jan. 1 for New Year’s observance. 

Look what’s coming in the new year!

  • New Merriam Plaza Library is opening in Spring 2024 with approximately 15,000 square feet and will pay homage to some of Antioch’s most beloved features such as reading nooks in the kids section. Community input sessions held by the Library and architects led to features such as a convenient drive-thru, a large meeting room with updated technology to host storytimes and other events, plus two well-equipped study rooms and a variety of seating options across the branch. 
  • Local art exhibitions will be continuing as Johnson County Library partners with InterUrban ArtHouse to curate a diverse selection of artwork to display in the Library’s physical and digital spaces. While you view these exhibitions at the Library you can also scan the QR codes at each and listen to the artist’s audio commentaries and read their bios. 

And the tradition at Johnson County of offering a variety of resources for writers of all levels of experiences will still include lectures, workshops, contests and opportunities to share work with our community.
