Round VII Super Hero Championship: Marvel finalists!

Alright y'all we're getting to the end of our super hero championship! All summer the Aldine Branch Library has been voting to decide who will be our champion super hero. This week we are voting between our finalists from Marvel, so Deadpool vs Thor vs Ms. Marvel. To find voting ballots please go to the back of library, in the teen area by the corner with the windows you will find a book display with this weeks heroes (feel free to check out a comic too!) and the ballots will be there for you, bring a ballot for the hero you're voting for to the front desk.

You can vote online too in the county wide championship, but since we're in the finalist rounds you will be voting between different heroes.
