This Week at the Library

This week at the Library, you can join us at:

Poetry Walk at Strang Park – Daily, Nov. 1 - Nov. 30, All Day 
Talk a walk either before or after the Thanksgiving feastings and meander through Strang Park while you enjoy poetry by Traci Brimhall, Poet Laureate of Kansas, on the theme of Memory Palace. Poetry boards with accompanying artwork by Kelly Yarbrough will be placed throughout the park. 

Tabletop Games – Monday, Nov. 20, 6 – 7:45 p.m.
Join us at the Gardner Library for a fun-filled event with family and friends and become a part of the Johnson County tabletop gaming community. Discover new games from our collection or bring your personal favorite to share – you might get creative with a round of Dixit, collaborate to escape the Forbidden Island or strategize your way to victory as King of Tokyo! Come and go as you please. Refreshments are provided.

READ to a Dog with Pets For Life – Tuesday, Nov. 21, 3:30 – 5 p.m.
Here’s a super cool opportunity at the Central Resource Library. The Reading Education Assistance Dogs (R.E.A.D.) program improves children’s reading and communication skills by employing a powerful method: reading to a registered therapy dog or cat! These animals volunteer with their owner/handlers as a team. Please note: space is limited for this program; kids will get a ticket at arrival and wait their turn to read to one of several animals.

Johnson County Genealogical Society Monthly Meeting – Saturday, Nov. 25, 10 a.m. – noon
Enjoy a genealogy program and visit with JCGS members at the Central Resource Library about your research and family history. Free and open to the public. Meets in the Carmack Room. The November topic is Digging into Land Records with Pam Miller, JCGS member and genealogy class instructor. 

And there’s much more happening this week …
