One of the great aspects about Summer Reading is the yearly theme.  The nationwide Cooperative Summer Learning Program plans out themes several years in advance, first selecting a general topic and then narrowing it down into a specific theme for the year.  This year’s themes are especially exciting.

Adults are invited to “Escape the Ordinary” by reading and teens are encouraged to “Unmask”, while children are reminded that “Every Hero Has a Story.” 

The hero theme makes for some great programming opportunities as many children’s programs focus on different types of heroes, either the superheroes of novels and movies or more local heroes who serve the community.  Already, children have had the opportunity to make superhero capes and color their own superheroes, as well as hearing from different local heroes in law enforcement and fire and rescue. 

Adults have their own program to enjoy.  Review forms are available at the front desk which patrons are encouraged to take when they check out a book.  By completing and returning the review forms, participants are entered into a drawing for prizes donated by local vendors.  During the event’s finale, drawings will be held to select a grand prize winner who will receive a tablet.  Already, local hero Mike Nance of Union Public Safety has drawn this summer’s first two adult winners – Cathy Wood and Pam Vaughan.  The Summer Reading programs will continue throughout June and July, so there is still plenty of time to participate.
