Celebrate police heroes at story time

The Newcastle Public Library celebrates some of its everyday, real-life heroes with its story time called “Policemen are Heroes, Too!” at 11 a.m. on Monday, June 8. Registration is not required to attend.

Shelly Spratt of the Newcastle Police Department will be at the library to talk about the police force and share stories. The event also will feature themed crafts and other activities, and is geared to preschool and elementary school-age children. It’s part of the library’s Summer Reading Program and its theme “Every Hero Has a Story.”
