Collection + Resources

Johnson County Library strives to provide a collection that mirrors the changing needs of our community, including traditional books as well as a growing collection of e-resources. We believe this collection should be rich in ideas, information and viewpoints from all lifestyles and each side of a topic without restrictions on access.

A collection should also provide access in a format that avoids duplication and speaks to the needs of the patrons. Purchasing collections include additional services available through internet and database access, inter-library loan and a number of other resources. The American Library Association endorses and upholds these principles of intellectual freedom as outlined in the appendix of our collection development policy.

Your investment in Johnson County Library generates a 300% return.
