Your Community: New roof scheduled for Cedar Roe Library

Shawnee Mission Post Sponsor - October 14, 2019 2:00 pm


This past summer, Cedar Roe Library threw a party to celebrate 50 years of serving the needs of its community. Not surprisingly, many came out to show their support for this beloved branch, sharing stories and reconnecting with former staff. Johnson County Library will soon be making some improvements to the Cedar Roe branch so it can continue to serve the community well into the future. The branch will be closed Oct. 27 – Dec. 29, 2019, for installation of a new roof. The branch will reopen Monday, Dec. 30 at 9:00 a.m. Cedar Roe Library is located at 5120 Cedar St., Roeland Park, KS. Patrons of this branch have been notified by email with details about how this will impact them during the closure.

What will happen from Oct. 27 – Dec. 29?
