This Week at the Library

Library OnDemand – Available anytime you like. 

Pollinator Series – Tuesday, April 11, 4 – 5 p.m.

Bees, butterflies and bats . . . oh my! Spring is here and our regional pollinators are in full flight. Join us at the Corinth Library with Johnson County Master Gardeners for this workshop to learn from the experts exactly what is happening when these animals and insects are flying about. Each participant will receive seeds to help grow more places for pollinators to explore.

Tabletop Games – Tuesday, April 11, 6 – 7:45 p.m.

Join us for a fun-filled evening at the Gardner Library with family members and friends, old and new, and become a part of the Johnson County tabletop gaming community. Kids, teens and adults can enjoy a variety of games together, including collaborating to escape the Forbidden Island, getting creative with a round of Dixit, or strategizing their way to victory as King of Tokyo! Discover and learn new games from our collection or bring your personal favorite to share. Come and go as you please. Refreshments are provided. Each month, our gaming librarians will feature a family-friendly game and teach you how to play it! Gardner's featured game in April is Forbidden Island

Tween Book Club – Wednesday, April 12, 4:30 – 5:30 p.m.

If you’re age 9-13 and enjoy reading, this program is for you! Let’s get together at the Monticello Library to read new books, discuss ideas and characters, and meet other book lovers. We read a different book each session, and staff will lead the group in a discussion about the book. Participants will get a free book while supplies last. Stop by the Youth Services desk to pick up your book for April is Harbor Me by Jacqueline Woodson. 

Family Storytime at Lenexa Public Market – Wednesday, April 12, 6 – 6:30 p.m.

The whole family will enjoy this flexible Storytime at the Lenexa Public Market. Hearing stories is a great way to spend time with your kids and help them foster a love of reading. Stories, songs, fingerplays and movement activities foster pre-reading skills. Fun for the whole family.

Teen Book Swap Café – Sunday, April 16, 2 – 3 p.m.

Tired of being stuck at home with your old books? Ready for a spring refresh? Bring a stack of books, audiobooks and other media to swap at the Lenexa City Center Library! Get to know other members of the book community as you grab a snack, chat and trade new or lightly used books. Teens 12-19 welcome. This program is trade only – so no selling will be allowed. Limit of 10 books per person to trade. Registration is required. Registrants will get a free tote to carry all your new books.

And much more happening this week …
