Adventure: the pursuit of life -- Daniel Roy

Now that summer is here, bring on the adventures. Explore the Lagoons, learn how to canoe, play tennis, volleyball, digital art, or Scuba! Yes, all of these adventures and more can be found at the City of Mentor Parks and Recreation. So go and get your adventure on. But if you think it’s just too hot outside to do anything other than sweat perhaps you would like to cool down with one of these adventurous books?

Artemis Fowl
Percy Jackson
Alex Rider Series
Graveyard Book

Princess Ben
