There’s no race more amazing than a race across the galaxy!
Kids (eight to 12 years old) can speed their way past planets and through solar systems during a special program at 2 p.m. on Thursday, June 27, on our Main Branch’s lawn.
Teams will race across the galaxy, completing challenges at each planet they stop at. The team that completes the challenges quickest wins the race.
Our program is free and open to all eight- to 12-year-olds. However, registration is required. To sign up, please call us at (440) 255-8811 ext. 221.
This year’s Summer Reading theme is A Universe of Stories, so we’re offering programs that will leave stars in your eyes.
Throughout the summer, we’ll host different programs with space themes, including a visit from a NASA engineer who’ll discuss the new Orion spacecraft at 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday, June 19, at our Main Branch.
Additionally, we’re hosting Marvelous Mondays at 1 p.m. each Monday from June 3 to July 22 on the lawn of our Read House. Each week the we’ll offer different games, crafts and activities that tie into space, planets and even aliens. Then, families can come to Freaky Fridays at 11 a.m. each Friday at our Lake Branch. Every week, we’ll have stellar activities for kids. No registration is required to attend Marvelous Mondays or Freaky Fridays.
And that’s just a smattering of the dozens of programs we’re offering this summer. They are free to attend, though some require registration. To sign up, call us at any of our branches.
Finally, everyone – kids, teens and adults – has a chance to win prizes when they participate Mentor Public Library’s Summer Reading program. The more people read and the more programs they attend, the better chance they have of winning.
