Our Local Hero Story Time series continued Thursday with Bonnie Rice from the city of Mentor and Beth Bollas from the Lake County Solid Waste District. (You may remember them from our Trashy Tuesdays.)
Then, the kids made necklaces using recycled wood and glass beads.
Join us for more Community Hero Story Times. Each week, we’ll be joined by a different local hero:
- Policewoman Marilyn, July 16
- Naturalist Leslie, July 23
- Yoga instructor, July 30
If you can’t join us Thursday evening, we also offer several other story times at all three of our branches.
And there’s still time to join the more than 1,400 kids who have signed up for our summer reading program 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.
