Every Hero Has a Story

Our Summer Reading Program, Every Hero Has a Story, is winding down!  The last day to participate is Saturday, July 25th. We hope you and your family have enjoyed yourselves! Don't forget to fill out our Customer Survey and let us know how we're doing!

The theme for each year's Summer Reading Program is different, but we've particularly enjoyed this one. Merriam-Webster defines a hero as a person who is admired for great or brave acts or fine qualities; a person who is greatly admired. Who are your heroes? We grew up on stories of Helen Keller's triumph over adversity; Eleanor Roosevelt's outspokenness and activism ; Amelia Earhart's derring-do. "Every Hero Has a Story" has included its fair amount of superheroes and the like; but we still enjoy celebrating everyday acts of courage.

If you would like to continue celebrating heroes after July 25th, we have some items in the catalog you might enjoy! Or, just let us know in the comments who your heroes are.
