Summer Reading Program - "Every Hero Has a Story"
Stop by the library this summer for reading, programs, & prizes! The program runs Saturday, June 13th - Friday, July 24th. This year's theme is all about heroes - real and fictional - and we'll have tons of fun things happening at the library all summer long.

The summer reading program is great for all ages, including Lil' Sidekicks (ages 0-3), Kids (ages 4-12), Teens (ages 13-18), and Adults (ages 19+). Sign up to receive a free gift and your reading log. Turn it in by the end of the program, and you'll be entered into drawings for fantastic prizes!

Adult & Teen Scavenger Hunt
"This DVD, featuring Star-Lord, Gamora, Drax, Groot, and Rocket went on to make $774.2 million, despite being based on a comic that was only ranked 61st in comic book sales the first month of its release."

Think you know the answer? Find where the item would be on the shelf at the library to access your next clue card. Find all 20 clues by July 24th and turn in your answer sheet for TWO 'sidekick' raffle tickets. You could win a $50 Target gift card; or a Star Wars, Harry Potter, or Marvel DVD gift set!

Adult & Teen Superhero Puzzle Pack
Pick up a 4 piece superhero puzzle pack at the reference desk for a chance to earn extra 'sidekick' raffle tickets. Answer trivia, complete a word search, find your own superhero name, and imagine a complete new superhero to finish the pack.

Turn it in on Monday, June 15th for two tickets or by July 24th for one ticket. You could win a $50 Target gift card; or a Star Wars, Harry Potter, or Marvel DVD gift set!
