The annual Summer Reading Program is sending out the book-signal for superheroes everywhere! This year’s theme is “Every Hero Has a Story,” and the all-ages program kicks off June 1st to fill the summer with superhero programs and activities. The program is broken into different age groups—toddlers, children, teens, and adults—each with their own activities, programs, and prizes, encouraging everyone to use their reading superpower during the summer. Children can progress through superhero stages featuring Spider-man, Wonder Woman, Iron Man, and Batman! Teens “Unmask!” and fill out their own booklet, featuring book logs, a favorite villain bracket, and more. And adults can participate by entering our drawings every time you return materials or read an ebook, as well as fill out trivia sheets, crossword puzzles, and other hero-themed games.
This year, we are opening the program to everyone who wishes to participate—whether or not you have a library card! Anyone in Huntington County can participate by reading his or her own books, or even library books inside either library! Library cards are only needed if you wish to check our materials out—almost every other service we offer is available for everyone to use. Signups begin Monday, May 18th at both libraries, and adults may sign up on our website at http://hctpl.info starting Monday. The program will close on July 15th.
Make sure to check out our various superhero-themed books, blockbuster movies, music, and graphic novels as well!
