About Johnsburg Public Library


The Johnsburg Public Library District provides materials and services to help patrons obtain information meeting their educational, recreational, informational, and personal needs. Special emphasis is placed on assisting students of all ages in meeting educational objectives. The library encourages young children's interests and appreciation for reading and learning, as well as providing recreational and leisure materials for patrons of all ages.

Primary role of the Johnsburg Public Library District is that of a Formal Education Support Center, with secondary roles being a Preschoolers' Door to Learning and a Popular Materials Library.

Children age 17 and under must have a signed parental permission form on file before using the Internet stations. Wireless Internet access is also available. The cost of printing is 10¢ a page for black and white and 50¢ a page for color. You can also print wirelessly from your own computer or mobile device and pick up print jobs at the library. Everyone who uses a library computer must follow our policy regarding computer and Internet use.

For-profit groups may use the room upon payment of $50 per meeting. The meeting room must be booked in person and a room reservation form must be signed. Any group wishing to use the Community Room must agree to follow library policies.
