“Everyday Heroes,” the 2015 Summer Reading Program, will launch its month-long campaign on June 1 at Pawhuska Public Library.

Programs for elementary school-age children in first through fourth grades are scheduled twice each week, on Mondays and Tuesdays, with starting times at 1:30 p.m. “Every Hero Has a Story” will be the theme for programs featuring community heroes, animal heroes, cowboy heroes, and just-for-fun legends and superheroes.

On Tuesdays, beginning at 10 a.m., there will be a Children’s Story Time for preschoolers through kindergartners.

Weekly programs for youth 10 to 15 years of age are to be presented on Wednesdays and Thursdays, with starting times at 1:30 p.m. “Unmask: The Hero Within” will be the theme for this series and some of the program titles include: Being my own hero, Native American heroes, Environmental heroes, and Heroes in service to our state and nation.

Young readers who participate in the Summer Reading Program are eligible to enter the library’s drawing contest: My Own Hero. Contestants are to draw or write about their favorite hero — which could be a family member, a friend, a character from a book, a national celebrity or a self-created hero.

Sponsors for the 2015 Summer Reading Program 2015 include the Institute of Museum and Library Services, the Oklahoma Department of Libraries and the Sonic Corporation.

All local programs will take place in the community room of the library, located at 1800 Lynn Ave.
