Summer Reading 2015
"Every Hero Has a Story"

To promote our 2015 Summer Reading Theme "Every Hero Has a Story" staff at the FFL made music videos to share with the community. The videos were used to generate excitement and buzz around the Superhero theme and were shared via social media and through outreach visits. In spring 2015, Stephanie visited 12 schools/preschools and reached over 500 families. To see the rest of the summer reading videos, visit the FFL Youtube channel.
