We threw a birthday party for the United States on Thursday (admittedly a day early) at our Mentor-on-the-Lake Branch.

Kids made patriotic crafts including birthday-candle bookmarks and red, white and blue pencil wands.

Then they decorated cupcakes with—what else?—red, white and blue frosting.

Avery, Eli and Cheyenne put the finishing touches on their bookmarks.

For more programs and events at our Lake Branch (or any of our branches,) check out Mentor Library’s event calendar.

And while you’re at the library, you can sign 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.
