      Summer reading fun continues for the month of July at the Huron County Community Library.  At our Willard location, Teens can earn extra tickets for their Summer Reading Prizes by attending our “Marvel Movie Day Wednesdays” at 12 p.m.  On July 10 Tony Stark and Bruce Banner try to jump-start a dormant peacekeeping program called Ultron, and things go horribly wrong so it's up to Earth's mightiest heroes to stop the villainous Ultron from enacting his terrible plan.  Then watch our second movie when armed with a super-suit with the astonishing ability to shrink in scale but increase in strength, cat burglar Scott Lang must embrace his inner hero and help his mentor, Dr. Hank Pym, plan and pull off a heist that will save the world.  On July 17, while on a journey of physical and spiritual healing, a brilliant neurosurgeon is drawn into the world of the mystic arts and then with many people fearing the actions of super heroes, the government decides to push for the Hero Registration Act, a law that limits a hero's actions. This escalates into an all-out war between our super heroes.  On July 24 Peter Parker balances his life as an ordinary high school student in Queens with his superhero alter-ego Spider-Man, and finds himself on the trail of a new menace prowling the skies of New York City.  A second movie follows with Thor being imprisoned on the other side of the universe and finds himself in a race against time to get back to Asgard to stop Ragnarök, the destruction of his home world and the end of Asgardian civilization, at the hands of an all-powerful new threat, the ruthless Hela.  On July 31 T'Challa, heir to the hidden but advanced kingdom of Wakanda, must step forward to lead his people into a new future and must confront a challenger from his country's past.  In the second movie the Avengers and their allies must be willing to sacrifice all in an attempt to defeat the powerful Thanos before his blitz of devastation and ruin puts an end to the universe.
