A Universe to Explore

NASA turns 60 this year. The Apollo Moon Landing was 50 years ago. Summer Reading at Johnson County Library highlights this history and inspires kids of all ages to dream big, believe in themselves and create their own stories.

Reading is a skill, and the more you practice the better you get. We encourage school-aged families - and everyone else while we're at it - to read for at least 30 minutes a day. You can read anything: books, magazines, video game liner notes; it's up to your individual likes and interests.

What's really cool is this: reading about things impacts the same parts of your brain - physically and psychologically - as actual 3D experiences! So, reading is doing. Reading experiences help you explore interpersonal skills, nurture your empathy and deepen your emotional intelligence.
