Cedar Roe Library is back in operation this morning after being closed more than a week from flooding that damaged an electrical panel.
The library branch at 5120 Cedar St. in Roeland Park serves northeast Johnson County. Any holds that library users had on materials will be extended another week and library staff said any deadlines that were affected by the closing will be adjusted accordingly.
The library was forced to close for the several days after water came in through the foundation and a part had to be shipped in to repair the electrical panel. The Cedar Roe branch is subject of a town hall meeting Thursday at Sylvester Powell Community Center in Mission. The library’s future is in jeopardy as part of the long-term capital plan for the library system suggests its consolidation with the Antioch library branch. That meeting begins at 7 p.m.
