The Summer Reading Program at the Cardington-Lincoln Public Library has carried out the theme “Super Hero Training Academy,” with special guests appearing that are related to that theme.

The program which is held every Wednesday for five weeks, begins at 11 am.

Recently, the youngsters visited the Cardington Fire Department, EMS and Police Department following the theme for the week “Our Community Heroes.”

Each department spokesperson spoke briefly on the duties of their department and answered questions although most of the youngsters were more interested in exploring the vehicles used. They climbed into the units with personnel standing by for assistance and to answer questions.

Deputy Brian Newsome encouraged the youngsters to interact with his seven year old Canine Unit.

Future programs include the visit by Magician Kleefeld on July 1 and Dick Noll, Scientist, on July 8. The program will wind up on July 15 with the annual Pool Party.

Youths from grades one through 12 are invited to the program which is led and organized by Hillary Scholz, the library’s youth director.
