|Free Book Party for 50 plus planned at Antioch Library on April 16|
A free book party is being planned for April 16 at the Antioch Library, 8700 Shawnee Mission Parkway, Merriam. This program is being presented by the Johnson County Library and the Johnson County Park & Recreation District's 50 Plus Department.
Participants are invited to read what they'd like and then come and discuss their new favorite book. Each person will have time to talk about a book, and there will also be time at the end for general discussion. Refreshments will be served.
The book party will take place beginning at 2 p.m. on Thursday, April 16. This one-hour program is free and preregistration is not required. Another Book Party is scheduled for July 16.
To find this program in the JCPRD’s Activities catalog and online listings, browse first under 50 plus and then under enrichment & special interests. In the printed catalog and when using the website’s advanced search, look for the keyword "reading."
While the JCPRD's 50 Plus programs are primarily for people who are age 50 or older, interested parties who have not yet reached that magic age may still be able to attend. Persons 18 and older who are interested in a 50 Plus class are invited to call the district's Registration Department at (913) 831-3359, and if space is available without forfeiting the place of a person over 50, their registration can be taken.
