elementia goes Digital

This year elementia has gone digital due to the COVID-19 situation. But that won't stop these teen literary voices from being heard. We give elementia writers the platform to perform live, albeit remotely. Kate McNair interviews a few of the publication's editors and producers as well. We also hear from our Librarians as they offer eLibrary suggestions and some of their favorite young adult author quotes. This is can't miss stuff. Did you hear? We've got some amazingly smart and talented teens right here in Johnson County! 

Empowering Entrepreneurs

A rolling stone gathers no moss. Your duffs have no moss! You volunteer!!!

Conference rooms?

Let's say you've got a group of 10 - 18 people getting together to exchange porridge recipes. A meeting room that hosts up to 150 people is just too big! What about a 6 person study room? Well, there are fire codes! And, what if somebody forgets to wear their deodorant?! Don't worry! We have the solution: The conference room! Not too big. Not too small. Just right.

"I found the size of the conference room to be just right!"
