Kids learn how to train their dragons at Mentor Library

Kids had a chance to catch and train their own dragons last week at Mentor Library. (Don’t worry. No children or dragons were injured during the dragon-training process.)

The fun was in anticipation of How to Train Your Dragon 2‘s premiere. If you want to get caught up on your dragon training, you can borrow both the first movie and the books from us.

More than 1,000 kids and 100 teens have already signed up for our summer reading program, but there’s plenty of room for more.

This year’s summer reading program is dedicated to science, and we’re hosting fun programs—many dedicated to science—all summer.

We’ll be having Mad Science Mondays where children can perform hands-on experiments and make crafts using different themes each week. We’re also hosting Trashy Tuesdays every other week where kids can make fun crafts using recycled supplies.

Teens will have Weird Science Wednesdays throughout June that feature experiments with photography and weather. (Last week, we created soda-pop explosions.)

Everyone who participates in our summer reading programs—either by reading and/or attending library programs—has a chance to win prizes. Grand prizes include a $100 gift card from Toys ‘R’ Us for kids and Nook eReaders for teens and adults. The more someone reads, the better chance they have of winning something.

If you want to sign up for summer reading, you can register for it at any of our branches.
