Carver Memorial Library's summer reading program, "Every Hero Has a Story," celebrates local heroes who keep us safe. Some of them will visit, talk about what they do, and read a story.

The following heroes will visit on Tuesdays at 1 p.m.: July 7, Ambulance Director Adrian Stone will show the inside of the ambulance; July 21, Jay Holweger will talk about search and rescue and introduce Maddy, his search dog; Aug. 4, Fire Chief Andy Webster will show the equipment on a fire truck; and Aug. 18, Police Chief Richard LaHaye will show what's special about a police cruiser.

On Friday, Aug. 21, at 1 p.m. the ice cream truck from Darling's Ice Cream for a Cause will be at the library for a summer reading party and fundraiser for Searsport Ambulance's new defibrillator. Ice cream is free for kids, by donation for adults, and everyone who participates in the summer reading program will get a free book to keep.

Program registration packets are available at the library. For more information, call 548-2303 or email
