Every Hero has a Story – Summer 2015


Slogan TextThis summer’s theme is “Every Hero has a Story.”  The theme is just a fun thing to give us something to hang activities onto.  You may read what you wish to read (Though reading about one of YOUR heroes couldn’t hurt!) and you may attend as many or as few of the programs as you wish.  Basically there are two parts to our program:  Recording your reading and coming to fun programs.

The first and, perhaps, the most important part is that of tracking reading activity. The library will recognize reading achievement with recognition, awards and prizes at several levels in a variety of ways; details available here soon.

Sign up NOW!

The second part is that of programs and includes a number of special events that have been scheduled to fit this summer’s elementary and early childhood theme of “Every Hero has a Story!”  The full descriptions of our events are below.  You may download a calendar that list the event, dates, time & location, but does not go into much detail for each event:  Every Hero has a StoryElCal2015
