Johnson County Library
Johnson County Library is excited to bring its patrons “All Together Now” with both virtual and in-person program offerings!
We will kick off Summer Reading with award-winning author and international bestseller, Jacqueline Woodson, on Thursday, June 1, starting at 6 p.m. at Central Resource Library. Attendees will hear from Jacqeline Woodson on the power of storytelling to connect us all. Each family will receive one free book of choice (as supplies last) for the signing.
In June, we will enjoy a variety of music and movement with Latin Grammy-award winning musical guest, MISTER G, a breakdance workshop with SugEasy, and interactive musical storytelling with Dino O’Dell. In July, we will feature the storytelling talents of Jo Ho, learn how math and science come together to create chemistry with Mad Science, and go on a musical adventure with Drum Safari.
We will come together as a community to celebrate the end of summer on Saturday, July 29, at Central Resource Library. Featured presenters will include Funky Mama, Social Swing and Coloratura.
