Hi! I filled out the form to request a kit for our library. Do you know when the kits will be sent out? Thanks for your help! :-) (We are having an "All Ages Read-athon" on July 26th, we are excited to celebrate Batman Day also!)

We ordered ours in May too and haven't seen it yet. 

While we are waiting, I'd love to some help with other celebration ideas with folks on the forum.  So far we have:

book display, photobooth, a projector with the bat beacon, batman lego movie, cartooning workshop, count the bats, find the joker contest.  thinking of a short story writing contest?

I just received my kit today!  Cool masks, a timeline poster, plastic bag.  Are you all doing this strictly for teens or just in general?

We had an All Ages Read-athon planned for July 26th, which just happens to be the Batman Day! So we are going to tie it in with our read-athon. :-)

Great to know you received your kit Jackie! I'm looking forward to getting ours! :-)

I think all ages is good!  Some of Batman is rather "dark" but not all of  it.  I'm a sucker for masks, too!  :)

Has anyone else received a kit? I am still patiently waiting!

I ordered mine in May and I haven't received it either!
