Book Giveaway?

We have suspended the Summer Reading Book Giveaway that is traditionally distributed at our branches due to the current pandemic. The Library is adapting to these extraordinary circumstances by providing access to e-books, hosting reading and learning-focused online programming to reach as many children in Johnson County as we can. ​

Have fun reading or listening to the books of your choice this summer. The total amount is up to you! Keep track with this Summer Reading Log! (PDF) write down titles, or color in a star for each book you read, or log minutes spent
reading, etc. How you use it is up to you!​
