1952 Society: Writing the Library’s Next Chapter

The Johnson County Library story began in 1952 when several PTA moms focused their passion for education and rallied to establish the Johnson County Library.  The first libraries were in the basements of businesses and homes until funding could be established.  Today we welcome more than 2.4 million visitors and circulate 7 million items annually. 

We are proud of our beginnings and ask you to partner with us to insure future generations have access to quality library services and programs. The 1952 Society recognizes donors who have committed to make a planned gift to the Johnson County Library.  These gifts demonstrate a unique and enduring commitment to the Library’s mission and provide benefits and security for generations yet to come.

If you are considering making a planned gift, these documents will help you express your intentions
