Summer Adventure 2015: Be a Hero—Help Someone

Sign Girl copyEarn points for the Summer Adventure by being a hero. Help someone out in your everyday life!

When you first think of being a hero, the first thing that may come to your mind is firefighters, policemen, military soldiers, or even Captain America, but there’s more to being a hero than that!

Here are some examples:

  • Volunteering
  • Caring for your or someone else’s pet (with the owner’s permission!!)
  • Babysitting
  • Caring for the environment
  • and anything else heroic that you can think of!

Want to learn more? Check out some of these websites or books from the library. You can also visit our online catalog to find additional reading material. We have a bunch of books on caring for your pets, protecting the environment, or whatever your interest.
