Readers can check some books off their reading lists and earn points toward prizes by exploring books and fun things to do in the community during this year’s summer reading program at the Johnson County Public Library.

“Every Hero Has A Story” runs through July 18. The Summer Learning Program creates opportunities for all ages to learn, create and discover.

Readers can do activities including visiting museums, writing stories or trying a new recipe to earn points in addition to earning prizes by reading or listening to books, e-books, magazines and audiobooks.

Libraries will host superhero-themed programs for all ages throughout the summer. Visit the online events calendar to learn more and sign up. Some programs require registration.
