Johnson County Library is delighted to welcome everyone for Summer Reading 2023! The theme this year is “All Together Now” which is perfect to frame a rich roster of programming for the whole family. Johnson County Library is ready to invite everyone to book distributions and in-person events encouraging literacy and reading among children, teens and adults.
“We have really embraced this theme, thinking about programming that not only offers a variety of ways to get engaged in Library programming but also ways we can intentionally bring the communities of Johnson County together, all ages, all ethnicities,” said Elementary Coordinating Librarian Melanie Fuemmeler.
The Summer Reading theme is a nationwide campaign provided by the Collaborative Summer Library Program, with this year’s graphics done by illustrator Frank Morrison.
For many Johnson County Library staffers, Summer Reading is their favorite time of year. “I’m really excited about connecting patrons with new experiences,” said Monticello Youth Information Specialist Michelle Ranney. “Whether that’s going to a program or getting a free book or engaging with the Library for the first time. I love how it opens the community to all the different ways you can experience the Library.”
