Feeling patriotic at a Captain America-themed Marvelous Monday

If the theme to the party is Captain America, you have to know the captain (who sometimes goes by Oliver) is going to show up.

If the theme of the party is “Captain America,” you have to know the captain (who sometimes goes by Oliver) is going to show up.

We had another Marvelous Monday earlier this week at the Read House.

This time, our theme was Captain America. So kids tested their aim—have to be handy with a shield, after all—as well as their intelligence.

And there were some patriotically-themed snacks too!

We have two more Marvelous Mondays left. The theme is Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles on July 20 and Captain Underpants on July 27.

The games, crafts and activities start at 1 p.m. at our Read House. No registration necessary. Just come over and have fun!

And there’s still time to join the more than 1,400 kids who have signed 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.
