It was a great summer.
We built hovercrafts, made lava lamps, learned how to train our dragons, blew up pop bottles, learned how to take fingerprints and were visited by one of the NASA scientists who helped make the Mars Rover.
We also got to Know Poe.
More than 1,400 kids, 350 adults and almost 200 teens participated in our summer reading programs. We got to give away a bunch of cool prizes, including 573 Library Champion signs to all the kids who read 15 hours or more.
Thursday night, we had a Summer Reading finale party. Kids got to recreate their favorite Mad Science Monday experiments. (Bubbles!) And we capped the evening with a concert from Eve ‘N Stephen Music Fun Band.
From all of us at Mentor Public Library, we hope you had as much fun this summer as we did.
We hope you learned new things, stimulated your imagination and had a great time.
Most of all, we hope to see you again soon at the library.
Because summer reading may end, but the fun never has to.
