We dedicated our final Marvelous Monday—our summer-long celebration of heroes—to Captain Underpants and his “creators” George Beard and Harold Hutchins.
Kids made capes with their own Professor Poopypants-endorsed monikers. (For example, I’m Chim-Chim Banana Brain.) They also used toilet-paper rolls to stop the nefarious Turbo-Toilet 2000 and completed a Captain Underpants-approved obstacle course.
This may have been the final Marvelous Monday, but everyone still has until Saturday, Aug. 1, to log their summer-reading hours and books. (On that note, please remember to log your hours if you’re a kid or books if you’re a teen or adult at any of our branches by this Saturday. We want to make sure you get credit for all the reading you did!)
And we still have fun programs coming up:
- If you’re feeling crafty, you can make Comic Book Coasters featuring your favorite superheroes this Thursday, June 30, at our Mentor-on-the-Lake Branch.
- Celebrate science during our final Super Science Saturday of the Summer on Saturday, Aug. 1. We’ll be making slime and elephant toothpaste!
Families can also join us for our End of Summer Reading party from 6 to 8:30 p.m. on Thursday, Aug. 6, at Mentor Public Library’s Read House. Kids can meet animal superhero Keith Gisser and the rescued reptiles of Herps Alive. There will also be games, crafts and kids can see if they won one of the prizes from Mentor Library’s summer reading program.
