Celebrate Literary Heroes this Summer at Mentor Library

We’re celebrating heroes of all types this summer at Mentor Library.

And, yes, we realize when we say “heroes” most people think of tights and flights, but not every hero wears a cape.

For example, we’re recognizing community heroes like police officers, firefighters and teachers during our Family Story Times on Thursdays this summer. (In fact, you can join us from 7 to 7:30 p.m. on June 11 for a Teddy Bear Clinic with a local nurse.)

We’re also sharing our favorite literary heroes this summer. In the video above, Ms. Lisa explains why Pete the Cat is her hero. (It’s not just his groovy buttons or cool white shoes.)

That’s just the beginning! We’re having a special mixed-up fashion show like Junie B. Jones on Thursday, June 18. After all, what’s June without Junie?

And we’ll be celebrating more of our heroes all summer—Dr. Seuss, The Magic Tree House, Wimpy Kid. Who’s your hero?

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

Everyone who participates in summer reading—either by reading books or attending library programs—has a chance to win prizes. Those prizes include gift cards from Toys ‘R’ Us and Lake County Captains tickets, as well as gift cards from other local businesses. The more someone reads, the better chance they have of winning.
