A little Bit About Us
“The mission of the Buena Vista Public Library is to make high-interest, high-demand materials readily available, as well as to actively support the lifelong learning, recreation, and information needs of community residents of all ages and abilities. Special emphasis is placed on stimulating children’s interests and appreciation for reading and learning, on integrating new technology with traditional library resources, and expanding access and services beyond the library’s walls”.
Since its establishment in 1898 the Buena Vista Public Library has been a source of recreational reading for adults and children of the town and surrounding area. The library will continue to serve as an “open door to exploration & learning” for all who need us. Today’s library is so much more than a “book repository”. The Buena Vista Public Library stands ready to provide the community with exceptional programming, computer services, answers to your informational needs, and a friendly smile!

The Buena Vista Public Library Staff:
Karen JohnsonActing Director
Hello Friends! The Library has become my family and the community my friends over the years. I moved to BV in June, 1997 to start a massage therapy business and started working at the Library in September, 2004. I have seen lots of changes here over the years, and am most excited about being a part of this team with goals of turning our library into a community center everyone can enjoy and come to for information, entertainment, programs and social connections. A great day is seeing people’s faces light up when we find them the books or movies they are looking for, then going home and snuggling with my cat, Shanti. I am most fortunate to have these experiences every day!!

After teaching kindergarten and first grade in Illinois, my husband and I moved to Buena Vista in 2012. In the fall of 2013 I joined the BV Public Library and 3 years later, I have taken on the role of the Youth Services Coordinator! I LOVE being able to buy books, materials and support programming for our wonderful BV Kids. We have awesome parents that bring their “littles” to the library and an amazing town where “older” kids are welcome to walk over for a visit after school. I’m excited to be a part of the new library atmosphere and can’t wait to see how things will continue to evolve. Please stop in and share your ideas with me.
