Superhero Day at the Keyes Library

Superhero Day at the Keyes Library

Quick Robin! To the Library! Comic books, graphic novels, and superhero stories have long interested children and adults alike. Celebrate these wonderful works with Superhero Day at the Keyes Library on Thursday, May 1 at 3 p.m. Children can make a superhero mask, participate in a superhero scavenger hunt, and choose a superhero name. Be sure to bring your cameras because Batman will be making a special appearance! Children can pose as their own superhero and take pictures with the Dark Knight himself! Participants can also come dressed as their favorite superhero; however, costumes are not required. Cake, snacks, and light refreshments will also be available while supplies last.

All events are free and open to the public! This event is sponsored by donations to the Friends of the Keyes Library. The Keyes Library is located on 4420 Maud Ave. For more information, please call 664-8006.
