Swoosh! Another Super-hero just flew by, Reading

Summer Reading Program Week 2. Over 500 people showed up for the Children’s Department’s Crocodile Encounter Reptile Show this afternoon and the whole library was alive and buzzing. There must have been 1000 super-heroes here today. (Me, exaggerate?) Some were learning how to use computers in our Computer Basics course; others were browsing the DVD, Non-Fiction, and Fiction shelves. Others yet may have been getting ready for the Young Adult Department’s Live Action, Hungry Hungry Hippos program here tomorrow afternoon at 3 pm. This evening some are discussing the latest, greatest, creepy adult book at the Paranormal Book Club. What was your super-hero-self doing today? I hope it included some great reading!
