Sewer line repairs — problems discovered Friday afternoon — caused the unexpected weekend closing of the Antioch branch of the Johnson County Library.
That branch, located at 8700 Shawnee Mission Parkway in Merriam, is typically open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday and from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. on Sunday.
The Antioch branch is one of only three branches of the Johnson County Library System typically open on Sundays. Now only the Blue Valley branch at 9000 W. 151st St. in Overland Park and the Central Resource Library at 9875 W. 87th St.
Overland Park will be open Sunday afternoon.
A library news release said the “Second Saturday” events scheduled at Antioch were canceled. All other branches were set to remain open during regular hours over the weekend. Patrons can call 913-826-4600 to check hours or find locations, or they can go to the library’s website: www.jocolibrary.org
