Sulphur Springs Public Library to the Rescue.  Summer Reading Program Theme “Every Hero has a Story”

Research is clear that children who don’t read during the summer can lose up to three months of reading progress.  Sustained summer learning opportunities lead to higher graduation rates, better preparation for college, and positive effects on children’s self-esteem, confidence and motivation.  Every Hero has a Story theme covers the values that make a superhero really super: trustworthiness, respect, responsibility, fairness, caring, and citizenship.  Pick up a calendar at the library or check the website  Story time is Tuesday 10am and Thursday 6pm.  We will have a Brett Roberts’ magic show and end the summer with a huge Community Read in called Hero-town from 6-8p.m. July 30 with food and local heroes.  Don’t miss the wonderful activities.
