Two superheroes will revisit their adventure with help from kids in the audience and a trusty sidekick during Superhero Storytime, a program of East Central Regional Library’s Summer Learning Program. All library branches will be hosting this exciting, interactive event!
After the stories conclude, the characters will be available – for 30 minutes – to meet and greet the guests and take pictures. Children are encouraged to wear their favorite hero attire. Parents and caregivers are asked to bring their own devices for photos and come dressed as the real life superheroes they are… in their street clothes.
Attendance is limited, and tickets – at no cost – are now available at the library. To reserve your spot pick up a free ticket at the location you wish to attend.
