This year’s theme is “Every Hero Has a Story,” and local readers can start finding stories at the library’s 2015 Summer Reading Kickoff, from  2 to 4 p.m. Thursday, May 28, or online.

Local everyday heroes of the police department and fire department will bring their trucks and vehicles to display. The day also will feature games, entertainment, snacks and information about what’s to come during the summer at the library.

The slate of special programming for the summer runs throughout June and July, with activities set for children, teens or adults, as well as some family-friendly programs for all ages.
