Super Summer Reading!

Greetings, reader guys and heroes everywhere! Next Monday, June 15, starts the library's ultra-cool and very exciting Summer Reading program. This year's theme is Every Hero Has a Story. Isn't that the perfect theme for GUYS? Doesn't that just make you think of flying through the air or racing through the streets in a high-tech vehicle? Of course it does! Every GUY knows he's really a superhero! Well, all kidding aside, this year's Summer Reading will be a lot of fun. It's a chance to get prizes for reading and participate in great activities. Find out more by going to the library's Summer Reading--Every Hero Has a Story site. It should tell you all you need to know but if you don't understand something, I (or anyone at the library) will be glad to explain to you how it works.

In addition, there will be a Summer Reading Kickoff here on Monday, June 15. We'll have some self-directed activities and Discovery Place will do a program at 2:00 pm. There will also be really good weekly programs like the Storytime Explorers on Monday nights at 6:30 and Tuesdays at 2:00 on (you guessed it) Tuesday afternoons at 2:00 pm.

But the Iron Guy, always looking out terrific stuff for boys to do, has scheduled some things for GUYS. The first is the next monthly meeting of the Boys Read and Write Club on Saturday, June 13 at 2:00 pm. The next will be the first Guys Movie Night on Tuesday, June 30 at 6:00 pm. This will be a chance for boys to come with their dads, grandpas, uncles, older brothers, mentors, etc. and have fun being GUYS by watching a movie together. This month we'll show The Incredibles.

All right, heroes, call the Myers Park library at 704-416-5800 to sign up for these programs. Let's have fun and knock out summer boredom together!
