South County Library Project

Jefferson County Public Library (JCPL) is embarking on an ambitious plan to open a new Library destination in the southern region of Jefferson County to provide greater access to resources, information, and opportunities for every generation.

Project Updates

In 2022, Jefferson County Open Space (JCOS) considered a proposal from the Jefferson County Public Library (JCPL) to purchase up to six acres of the 29.6-acre Sledding Hill Park for a new South Jefferson County Library and associated park improvements. To seek resident input on this proposal, several community meetings were hosted and attended by JCOS and JCPL. We thank all the residents that participated in these meetings and are grateful for the discussions, variety of perspectives, and valuable input shared.

At this point, JCOS has decided to delay a decision on this proposal indefinitely. JCOS and JCPL will provide public notification when more details are available. Learn more about the project timeline.

Board and Public Discussion

This project has been discussed during 2023 Board Meetings. Read about the latest updates, submit a comment to the Board or find attendance information.
