Every Hero Has a Story at library summer reading program

Readers of all ages will learn and explore this summer as Demopolis Public Library presents “Every Hero Has a Story” during their summer library program. Activities include art projects and illustrating, robots, super hero creation, slithering snakes, superhero dogs and much more!

The 2015 Summer Reading Program is open to young people, preschool through adult, with programs, prize drawings, story times, and more. Registration for “Every Hero Has a Story” begins on May 26. All programs are free of charge.

The library is partnering with the Demopolis Chamber of Commerce to kick off the summer reading program on Thursday, May 28 from 5-6:30 p.m. This free event will feature live music by Keith Owings on our patio, Foster Farms hotdogs, games and more! Families are encouraged to tour the library and register for the summer reading program.

The library, with help from the Colonial Book Club, is offering a new summer program called “Read, Think, Share!”. Children entering first or second grade can sign up to meet with mentor to read, think, and share ideas on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 2 p.m. The goal is to help improve reading and reading comprehension skills.

“Last summer was a huge success,” says library director Morgan Allen. “We had 25 programs for children, teens and adults with an attendance of 1,127. We circulated 9,435 items during June and July, including 347 eBooks. We hope more people will experience everything the library has to offer this summer.”
