Yes! The Johnson County Library is in design phase for two locations: Monticello and Lenexa City Center. For additional details on Monticello development and construction in western Shawnee:

The new Library is wrapping up design phases. We’re preparing to break ground later this Spring – maybe May, but we’re still confirming those plans. Construction should take about 18 months, and we plan to open late in the year, 2018.
