PRESTONSBRUG – If you thought you saw Batman driving through Prestonsburg on Saturday, you weren’t seeing things. Randy Reno and the staff of Prestonsburg Public Library just happen to know the Dark Knight, himself. Children and comic book fans were treated to a rare treat over the weekend when Batman and Spider-Man visited the Floyd County Library.
“Our son loves Batman and Spider-Man,” said Marsha Tackett, of Auxier. “Having events like this event today gives parents a place to take their children without having to leave town. The Floyd County Library has really been doing some good activities for children,”
Hero’s 4 Hire from Huntington, West Virginia travel to various events spreading their anti-bullying message to young and old alike.
“Today’s children are at a disadvantage more than ever, as many don’t have positive role models in their lives,” said Leslie Dunn, of Prestonsburg. “What made the event special today was not just the characters, but also the bat mobile. My son was excited to meet batman, my husband was excited to see the bat mobile.”
