The Johnson County Public Library is working on a five-year plan for its services, programs and buildings and is asking what the community wants.
Library officials want to know how people use the library and what they’d like added, director Beverly Martin said. The library board is gathering public input that will help shape a plan for the future of the countywide library system.
The library board is getting public comments while developing a new long-term plan for all four branches. The library’s 2005 plan called for a new branch in Trafalgar, which was built, and a bigger branch in Franklin, which was voted down in a referendum last year. The library is required by state law to put a new five-year plan in place and already has conducted two meetings to hear what residents have to say about what the library should do next about building improvements and services.
