Read to a Dog

This relaxed and friendly session allows kids to practice reading aloud skills with a certified (and very well-behaved) therapy dog as audience. You can go home and read to your own pet! A kid's reading improves with practice, and your dog's vocabulary will benefit too.

Mobile MakerSpace

Meeting Room
MakerSpace has gone mobile, and is traveling around the County from Library to Library. Mobile MakerSpace lets Makers come together and create with technology! Open to all ages, a 10-year-old can teach classes and a 70-year-old can play with toys; this is DIY learning at its most fun. Specific activities will vary from location to location. Let's Make it Happen!

Special Thanks to the Johnson County Library Foundation.

Lego Challenge

Everyone can play with Legos in this drop-in activity. Let's find out if you are up for a challenge! Start with patterns, then try a building contest, and move on to constructing mazes and contraptions. You, too, can become a master Lego builder.

Ages 5 - up: under 7 accompanied by adult.
