Children of all ages have the chance to be super heroes during this year’s Summer Reading Program at the Royalton Hartland Community Library called “Every Hero has a Story”. The six-week-long program that runs from July 9 through August 13 offers children of all age categories a range of activities that combine learning and fun and encourages them to read as much as they can.

Little Storytime for Preschoolers

Children ages 0-5 are invited to join Miss Sonora on Saturdays from 10:30 to 11 a.m. for stories and activities that are full of movement, songs and learning. Summer is no time to sit still, and the reading activities for your little ones are meant to keep them learning and moving. Sessions run from July 11 through August 8.

Kids will have a have a super time learning about all kinds of heroes on Thursdays beginning July 9 from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Traveling storytellers Allison and Ian will be entertaining and enthralling us with tales about heroes. Each session also includes time to create with crafts.

Mythology Madness for Ages 8-13

Saturdays from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. is when the fun and fantastic world of mythological heroes will come alive. Participants will get to know Percy Jackson & the Olympians, a series of fictional adventures, and the Goddess Girls, four goddesses getting to know the ins and outs of Mount Olympus Academy. And of course, pizza will also be part of these special sessions just for the “tweens” that begins July 11.
