Ask-a-Maker Session  Monday, April 19, 10 – 11  AM

If you're a Maker working on a current project, register for one-on-one help with a MakerSpace Facilitator, hosted live via Zoom. Whether you need help using hand tools, software or specific equipment, our Makers can answer your questions.

Book Party - Wednesday, April 21,  2 – 2:30 PM

Get some fresh reading and listening recommendations from one of our Librarians! Join us for a Book Party where a librarian will "booktalk" a short list of titles centering around a certain genre or theme.

In Memory of Six Million - Thursday, April 22, 6:30 – 7:30 PM

Join us for our 11th annual In Memory of Six Million Holocaust Remembrance program. Hear a survivor speak from the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum via Zoom. As survivors grow fewer as the years go on, we are incredibly grateful and excited to offer this opportunity to our patrons. The survivor will speak for 30 minutes allowing 30 minutes for audience questions at the end. The program will be recorded and available for viewing after the event.

Elementia issue XVIII Reception – Friday, April 23, 7 – 8 PM

Celebrate the 18th issue of elementia, the teen literary magazine published by Johnson County Library. Explore concepts of our theme "Bodies" with readings from published teens, artwork, music and a keynote performance from poet Franny Choi.

Franny Choi Poetry Workshop - Saturday, April 24, 9 –11 AM

elementia's issue xviii featured author Franny Choi will lead a workshop on poetry writing for teens and adults. A poet, playwright, essayist, slam champion, and podcaster, Choi writes through her existence as a Korean-American queer woman living in a society that capitalizes off beauty, bodies, race, and sexuality, thus was the perfect honoree for this year's elementia theme: Bodies.
