The new Monticello Library will open its doors to the public on Sunday, Aug. 5, 2018, 1 – 5 p.m., the Johnson County Library Board of Directors announced at their April board meeting.
The Aug. 5 event will be low-key, according to Library Board chair Nancy Hupp. “We know how eager our residents are to get into this beautiful facility,” she says, “so we are inaugurating services quickly, and people can start using their new library right away.”
The doors will open promptly at 1 pm. Activities will include tours of the new building conducted by library staff and opportunity to meet artists who’ve created new works of public art to be installed at the site. The afternoon event takes place during what will be regular Sunday service hours, making Monticello the fifth library in the county open on Sundays.
