This year's Summer Reading Program is "Every hero has a story"!
“This summer, we celebrate many types of heroes: the heroes of all ages who walk through the doors of the library each day; the heroes who have made their marks on history; the heroes who keep our communities safe, clean, and productive; and high-profile superheroes. No doubt your library’s shelves are full of outstanding fiction and nonfiction books about heroes of all kinds. From the youngest child to the strongest, mightiest crusader; each and every hero has his or her own story to tell. We recognize that all children have the potential to be heroes through words and actions; children are encouraged to discover the superheroes within themselves as they dress up, explore art projects and games, complete a variety of feats and deeds, and—of course—read!”Amanda Struckmeyer, Editor 2015 Collaborative Summer Library Program Childrens’ Manual
