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. ​
