That was a super summer!
Together, we auditioned as Minions, joined the Ninja Turtles and trounced Turbo-Toilet 2000. We celebrated local and literary heroes. And most of all, we did a lot of reading.
Precisely 1,485 kids signed up for our Summer Reading program, Every Hero Has a Story, and they read (or were read to) a total of 18,416 hours. That’s the most kids and most reading in Mentor Library history!
And more than 500 teens and adults signed up for our summer reading program, as well. Together, they read more than 2,200 books this summer!
Congratulations to everyone who joined us this summer for our summer reading program and events. And we have two things to say to you:
1. Never stop reading or learning.
2. The party isn’t over yet!
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.
See you at the party!
