Community Information Directory

The Community Information Directory: A Directory of Resources in the Junction City Area is a product of the library’s Reference Department. In publication since 2007, the directory provides basic contact and description information for more than three hundred and fifty local and regional agencies, organizations, and services.

Copies of the printed directory are free and available at the library for as long as supplies last. A PDF version is also HERE and is updated as information is received. To add a service or organization to the directory or to update information for an existing entry, please contact the Reference Staff at the (785) 238-4311 or reference@jclib.org.

The directory is truly a community wide effort and thanks goes to everyone who participates in its creation.
