Villains beware! On June 6, 2015 a new class of superheroes graduated from the Superhero Training Academy at the Jose Cisneros Cielo Vista Branch Library. This program was part of the Children’s Summer Reading Program.
Candidates for the Academy were subjected to an obstacle course that required they disarm bombs (balloons) by sitting on them. They also had to climb over a series of arches and jump through fiery hoops.
Candidates also were required to climb through webs and practice knocking down targets.
In addition to their training, candidates created masks, since every superhero needs a secret identity!
Library staff wore their best superhero attire to welcome the new superheroes into their ranks.
All candidates were awarded a certificate to celebrate their completion of the Superhero Training Academy, which were signed by some seriously awesome superheroes.
