|Colt and Rusty help kick off summer reading at Mentor Library. This year's theme is "Every Hero Has a Story."|
The party may have ended, but the fun has just begun and there's still plenty of time to sign up for summer reading.
And just a glance at our calendar shows you all the fun events and programs we have coming up.

On Thursday evenings, community heroes like nurses, police officers and firemen will join the library for special story times. After all, not all heroes wear capes. On June 11, a nurse will lead a teddy bear clinic.
The library will also be celebrating literary heroes like Junie B. Jones, Wimpy Kid and Dr. Seuss this summer. For example, kids can learn the power of positive thinking with Pete the Cat at 1 p.m. on Thursday, June 4, at our Main Branch.

Additionally, children who read or are read to up to 15 hours will receive a Library Champion lawn sign and window cling.

Our summer reading program for teens is Unmask! and for adults is Escape the Ordinary. You can register for both the teen and adult programs online. (However, to apply for our children's program, you will have to come to one of our branches.)
Everyone who participates in the summer reading programs—either by reading books or attending library programs—has a chance to win prizes. The more someone reads, the better chance they have of winning.
