We spent a fun afternoon with Sesame Street at the NY Public Library to celebrate new episodes on HBO and to learn more about the EVERYDAY HEROES CLUB.

They helped the kids learn what it means to be part of the "Everyday Heroes" Club, which promotes acts of kindness, big and small, including helping a friend or a family member; being kind to the environment or to animals; volunteering to help others, and so much more.

Then we saw two real life "Everyday Heroes" receive a grant from HBO to their charity of choice for their dedication to supporting their local libraries.

Patricia Kettles, Manager of the Port Richmond Library in Staten Island has gone above and beyond her traditional duties by staying after hours and walking kids home from the library.

Leela Aikens, a 14 year-old student collected enough signatures to send to local elected officials, resulting in increased library hours for the public.

We ended the event with healthy snacks, posing for photos with Cookie Monster and Grover, coloring and face painting.

What a great way to spend the day!
