We are huge fans of the library, the staff and the many services they provide to Johnson County residents and neighboring communities. One of the reasons we publish our AMIGOMAN comic books is to promote reading for school-aged kids, and being linked with institutions with similar educational and community goals, like the Johnson County Library, is a huge win-win. And we are glad to be a part of it.”, AO says.
