About the Program

This year's theme for the summer is the same for all ages: Every Hero Has a Story!

Check our online calendar for a complete list of events for all ages. Hours of reading this summer will help raise money for three local charities:

  • Make-A-Wish Foundation
  • Chances Animal Rescue
  • A Very Special Place.

Each time a weekly reading card is turned in, readers will vote for a charity plus earn a grand prize entry form. Votes will be tallied throughout the program, and the charity with the most votes will receive $500, second place $300, and third place $200.

Kids and teens will also earn a free book prize when they complete cards 3, 6, & 8. Be a hero for someone else and keep your brain "super" strong this summer by participating in Every Hero Has a Story
