Young Adult Literary Council – Tuesday, Jan. 9, 5 – 6 p.m.

Teens are invited to join the Young Adult Literary Council at the Lenexa City Center Library to share favorite books, pick up advanced reader copies of teen books to read and review, and participate in other fun activities such as author visits, game days, event planning and more.

Tween Book Club – Wednesday, Jan. 10, 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. Each session we read a different book, 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 copy of the January book, Where the Lost Ones Go by Akemi Dawn Bowman. 

Family Storytime at Lenexa Public Market – Wednesday, Jan. 10, 6 – 6:30 p.m. 

Join us for a fun, flexible Storytime at Lenexa Public Market, 8750 Penrose Ln., next to the Lenexa City Center Library. 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.
