No need to be shell-shocked. We just dedicated this Marvelous Monday to four adolescent, reptilian, martial-arts enthusiasts.

Yes, that’s right. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles!

Kids made their own shells, domino masks and balloon katana at the Read House on Monday and the results were—I have to say—radical!

They also demonstrated their ninja bonafides by completing an obstacle course and perfecting the art of tossing sewer lids.

When they were finished, they chowed down on—what else?—pizza.

We’ve had a great summer of Marvelous Mondays, and there’s still one left. Join us at 1 p.m. on July 27 at the Read House for games and crafts. This week’s hero is none other than Captain Underpants.

No registration is required. Just come out and have a good time.

And there’s still time to join the more than 1,400 kids who have signed up for summer reading at Mentor Public Library.

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.
