We’re Building a Better World this summer at Mentor Public Library, and we want to help you make something too.
Today’s craft is maracas. Your family can make your own musical instrument with nothing but a plastic egg, spoons, uncooked rice, and washi tape.
Additionally, we’re building as a team during Make-It Monday at 1 p.m. at our Read House.
You can also sign up for our Summer Reading program when you visit us.
Everyone who participates in the our summer reading program has a chance to win prizes. Those prizes include gift cards from local businesses, tickets to the Great Lakes Science Center and Cleveland Botanical Garden, as well as passes to Lake Metroparks Farmpark or the City of Mentor’s pools and ice rink. (By the way, thanks to all our sponsors who help make Summer Reading possible!)
The more someone reads, the better chance they have of winning.
Kids who read or are read to up to 15 hours will also receive a Library Champion lawn sign and window cling.
