The Avengers assembled Monday at our Read House and it was—in a word—adorable.

Kids hulked their way through brick walls, tracked down Hydra agents and Silly-Stringed ne’er-do-wells into submission.

We have fun programs scheduled for grownup Avengers fans too. On July 23, comics scholar Valentino Zullo talk about the Avengers’ history and impact on comics and entertainment. You can register for the talk on our website.

Black Widow (secret identity: Bailie) can smash just as well as any Hulk.

Every Monday in July, we’re going to have super fun with crafts, games, science and more from 1 to 2 p.m. at our Read House.

Each week has a different theme:

  • July 6, superhero sidekicks
  • July 13, Captain America
  • July 20, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
  • July 27, Captain Underpants

Join us for one or all of them. No registration is necessary. Just come over and have fun!

By the way, there’s still time to sign up for our summer reading program.

For every hour a child reads or is read to, they receive a raffle ticket that can help them win one of dozens of cool prizes—from telescopes and microscopes to Lego sets and Superhero Barbie. The more someone reads, the better chance they have of winning.

If a child reads 20 hours by Aug. 1, they will be entered into a special raffle to win one of two $50 gift certificates from Toys ‘R Us.

Mentor Library also has a summer reading program (and prizes) for teens and adults, as well. For more information about summer reading, call 440-255-8811 or visit Mentor Library’s website.
