"Every Hero" is a Summer Reading Success!

Tulare County Library wrapped up Summer Reading 2015 with over 9,000 participants, which includes 2,656  children, teens, and adults who signed up for reading logs and prizes. This year we celebrated summer with "Every Hero Has a Story," so it is not surprising there were lots of fun superhero crafts and activities. In addition, we recognized our real life heroes with story times, a safety fair, and visits by Fire, Police, Ambulance Drivers, School Staff, and the Red Cross.

Special performances this year included a magician, reptiles and other wildlife, musicians, Native American dancers, and more. Children and parents turned out for reading, performers, and activities in all Tulare County Library's fifteen locations, with Visalia seeing a huge turnout for performances with up to 400 at each event. Congratulations to our Librarians and Library Staff for being the heroes of Summer Reading.

Also, grateful thanks to the Friends of the Tulare County Library for our Summer Reading special programs!
