Libraries will celebrate “Superman Day” June 15 to coincide with a June release for the blockbuster film “Man of Steel.”

I was informed via Facebook by Jackson County Library Services that the Ashland teen librarian has sent for promotional material. The prospect delights this library volunteer.

I relate to the dilemma that many superheroes face, of having unique abilities that set them apart while being expected or wishing to blend in among members of “normal” society.

Random House is offering bookmarks, posters and buttons and encourages libraries to share photos, stating that “The library that does the best job exciting the fans for Superman will win 10 movie tickets to see Man of Steel.”

Event kits must be ordered by May 15 from Random House.
