The Stewart C. Meyer Harker Heights Public Library coordinated with Barnes and Noble to provide for our community an exciting, family-friendly that was free for all participants. Since Saturday, September 26 was Batman Day, we decided to incorporate the superhero theme into our annual Library Day at Barnes and Noble.
The Library and Friends of the Library registered individuals for Library cards and demonstrated our Virtual Library throughout the day. The Friends of the Library also held a bookfair at Barnes and Noble. For the Super Spectacular program, we read books, sang songs, and learned cheers. Children made bookmarks, enjoyed facepainting, and became part of the show. Attendees were treated to a visit from Batman, Green Arrow, and Raven. Our superheroes came courtesy of Heroes Alliance.
During Super Saturday, the Library also offered a party at the Library from 2-4 pm. Families came to build Gotham City out of Legos, to make their own bat refrigerator magnets, to eat yummy snacks, to play Wii games, and to meet Batman, Catwoman, and Raven (provided by the Hereos Alliance.)
The Library wants to thank Heroes Alliance for bringing these Spectacular Superheroes and the Harker Heights Teen Library Volunteers, Harker Heights High School Key Club, Eastern Hills Builders Builders’ Club, and the Harker Heights Kiwanis Club for providing excellent volunteer support for the two spectacular events!
