Summer Reading – Week 4

heroHere’s what’s coming up this week at the library:

June 22 (Monday):  At 10:30, Super Why from PBS will visit us for Family Story Time.  Take note that this program is at 10:30, and not 10:00.

What is Super Why?  Four fairytale friends go on magical adventures and become reading-powered superheroes. The characters live in Storybook Village, which is accessible through a panel
that is represented by an invisible questionmark. Preschool children follow the Super Readers as they jump into books that come to life.

heroes in our life (doctors, nurses, firefighters, police, veterans, animals, parents, etc.)  We will write on the Super Hero wall in the library.

June 25 (Thursday):  “Unmask Your Inner Hero” with LaTonya Carroll-Hampshire.  This promises to be a great program–we know LaTonya has been meeting up with a few Super Heroes.

June 26 (Friday):  Movie Matinee at 3:00 – We will be watching a movie about a man who shrinks his kids with his electromagnic shrinking machine then accidentally throws them out into the backyard with the trash, where they must venture into their backyard to return home while fending off insects and other obstacles.
