Super Heroes were jammed into every corner of the Escalon Library on Thursday, July 9 with a special ‘Show Off Your Super Hero’ program offered as part of the summer reading program.

Circulation assistant Emily Gillaspy planned the program, inviting youngsters to come in costume and talk a little bit about their favorite ‘hero’ character.

Her personal favorite is Superman, Gillaspy told attendees, and others in the crowd had costumes ranging from a Jedi Knight to Captain America, with Spiderman and a Ninja Turtle also in the mix.

Along with talking about their heroes, those attending the program colored masks, did some super hero crafts and had a costume parade.

This week, the summer reading program series wraps up with a performance by magician Brian Scott today, Wednesday, July 15. He will bring his “Biblio Spectacular” program to the library today at 2 p.m.

The free programs in the summer series were provided through the Friends of the Escalon Library.

Tuesday, the library offered puppeteer Tony Borders and his “Peter Pan: Hero of Imagination” program.

The summer reading program runs through July 31, designed to encourage everyone to read during the summer months. Participants also can win prizes for reaching their reading goals. For more information, contact the library at 209-937-8221.
