Young knights practiced their archery and agility this Magical Monday. They also designed their own helmet and shields!

Every week this summer, we’ve hosted Magical Mondays outside of our Main Branch on Summer Reading (when the weather permitted.) Kids enjoyed different crafts, games, and activities that tied into our Summer Reading theme of Imagine Your Story.

Next Monday, is our last Magical Monday of the summer. Join the fun! We only ask that you register beforehand. You can sign up online or call us at (440) 255-8811 ext. 221.

By the way, Summer Reading is almost over! The last day to receive raffle tickets for all your hours/books read is at 4 p.m. on Sunday, Aug. 1. Make sure you get credit for all the awesome reading that you’ve done this summer.

You have to love when the wand matches the horn!

We had so much fun making wands, jewelry boxes, necklaces and crêpe-paper roses during a crafty program celebrating the Rainbow Magic fairy book series by Daisy Meadows!

The next time you’re at the library, don’t forget to sign up for Summer Reading! This year’s theme is Imagine Your Story and we’re hosting programs all summer long about fairy tales, myths and magic.

Kids, teens and adults can all win spectacular prizes for reading this summer. Kids (those entering sixth grade or younger) can earn a raffle ticket for every hour they read or are read to. The more they read, the better chance they have to win one of the library’s prizes.

Kids who read at least 20 hours during Summer Reading will also earn a golden ticket and a chance to win a $50 gift card to Target.

Meanwhile, teens (those entering seventh grade and older) and adults can earn raffle tickets two ways. First, they can earn a ticket for each book they read. Next, they can earn up to 10 bonus tickets by completing different challenges. Each ticket means a better chance of winning.

Teens could sketch, draw, or paint what they wished during the art afternoon at Mentor Public Library.

We hosted an Art Afternoon for tweens and teens at our Lake Branch this week. The young artists sketched, painted, and colored whatever they wished. It was awesome to see their skill and creativity!

By the way, if you have a young artist or enjoy trying new art projects yourself, check out ARTPOCALYPSE for more ideas. Each Tuesday, Mr. Josh from our Headlands Branch shares a different craft or science experiment that your family can do from home. Discover how to transform a hula hoop into a loom, make a secret code, or create a homemade lava lamp with ARTPOCALYPSE.
