Kids meet local heroes at Pequot Library

This summer children can meet local heroes at Pequot Library, and the kids can enter an essay contest describing a hero, all part of Pequot Library’s Summer Reading Program. On Tuesday, June 23, “Meet Fire Chief Al” at 4 p.m., and then on Tuesday, June 30, “Meet Ruger, the K-9 Police Dog and Officer Wells.” From Monday, June 22-July 17, kids can enter the “Community Heroes Contest.” The programs are free, open to the public, and no registration is required.

On June 23, from 4-5 p.m., kids of all ages can learn what happens in a day in the life of a Fire Chief. Meet Fire Chief Al from Ocean Beach, N.J. who will talk with children about his job. Have fun exploring his fire truck! Activity sheets will be provided.

Come back on June 30, from 4-5 to “Meet Ruger, the K-9 Police Dog and Officer Wells.” Officer Wells, from the Fairfield Police Department will explain Ruger’s training and duties which include sniffing for clues to catch bad guys and helping find missing persons.

Children are invited to participate in Pequot Library’s “Meet Our Local Heroes — Community Heroes Contest.” Kids (age 7+) can submit a 100-200 word essay describing a hero in the community whose story they want to share. Entries must be accompanied by a photo or drawing of the subject. There will be prizes. Drop off entries June 22 through July 17, at Pequot Library during normal library hours. There will be a Fall reception to honor these heroes.
