If you have a child or grandchild younger than 12, there’s a good chance that you already know about the upcoming Minions movie.

We’re even getting caught up in the Minions-mania at Mentor Library.

Minions-in-training descended Wednesday upon our Read House to practice their mischief-making. If they completed six not-so-evil tasks, evil mastermind Gru would accept them in his employ.

The tasks included bowling…

If the completed all six tasks, they received a Certificate of Achievement as well as the sweet spoils of minion-hood.

By the way, 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.
