Welcome to the Glenn A. Jones, M.D. Memorial Library!
We look forward to serving you!
The library, which primarily serves residents from Johnstown and Milliken, has been in existence since 1965. It became a member library of the High Plains Library District in 1985. Since its very humble beginning, the library has been a valuable and much-cherished community institution.
What are we proudest of?
Friendly, helpful staff: WE LOVE OUR PATRONS! Our number one goal is to make sure you feel welcome when you come into our building. Our second (and equally important) goal is to make sure that when you leave our library, you leave happy, with all the resources you came for!
A large, diverse collection: We have something for everybody, from board books for toddlers to young adult novels for teens to the latest in fiction and non-fiction for adults. We have one of the largest inspirational fiction collections in the district.
Not interested in books? We have: Books on CD, music CDs, flash cards, beginning reader kits, magazines, and a very large assortment of the newest movie releases on DVD or Blu-Ray.
We’re fully “teched-out”: We have 12 computers available to the public, and access to over 100 databases like Hoopla, Mango Languages, and Ancestry. We also have a copier and a FAX machine.
Space to sit, relax, read, study: We have two small study rooms, a meeting room available to the public, and lots of nice, sunny nooks where you can sit down and spend a few pleasant hours.
Programming: We offer six different storytimes every week from September through May. Our summer reading program is seven solid weeks of non-stop fun for kids of all ages! Interested in improving your computer skills? We offer computer classes! Want to find a group of like-minded people with whom you can discuss the latest novel? We have a nice assortment of book clubs. Looking for something fun to do? We have all kinds of special events throughout the year, including Turkey Bingo, Noon Year’s Eve, Banned Books Week, Book Lover’s Month, the elementary art show, and more!
