Glenn A Jones MD Memorial Library

Welcome to the Glenn A. Jones M.D. Memorial Library, located at 400 S Parish Ave. The library has served the Johnstown / Milliken community for more than 40 years.

The library is truly a community space, from one end of the building to the other, as well as outside.

The children's section includes a whimsical area for Story Time and play that includes a round tower, a bridge and a fanciful mural painted by a local resident and patron. Cozy reading areas are scattered throughout the library: couches in large south facing windows, a fireplace with overstuffed chairs and a rocker. Areas are also available for private study and tutoring.

A conference room is available for public use, please contact the library for terms and an application.

Through a grant from Great Outdoor Colorado the landscaping includes displays and information on wildlife and plants native to this area. Additionally, the library is directly adjacent to the Eddie Aragon Skate Park just to the north.

Throughout the year the library offers a wide variety of programming to all ages:

Story Time is a wonderful opportunity to bring younger children to the library! Offered both Monday and Tuesday mornings at 9:30 am, this is a fun event for parents and children. Crafts are included once a month. Come have fun with Miss Kristi!
