Cedar Roe Library

About the Library

The Cedar Roe Library opened on June 2, 1969. Dedication of the facility took place on November 16, 1969. The following year, the Cedar Roe Library received the Excellence in Design Medal from the Kansas City Chapter of the American Institute of Architecture. 

Since the mid-1990s the Cedar Roe Library has received updating and refurbishing. The building has been wired for modern technology. Lighting has been modernized and functions moved to improve the functionality of the branch. With the interplay of wood and brick on the interior, Cedar Roe remains one of the most attractive and interesting of the Johnson County Library public facilities.


Cedar Roe Library offers a variety of events for both adults and children. See the current schedule.
