Hewitt wants "The Rock."

Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson that is.

The Hewitt Public Library's 2018 summer reading theme is "Libraries Rock," and to help celebrate, officials are trying to get Johnson's attention in hopes that the actor, producer and former professional wrestler will visit the McLennan County city.

City leaders posted flyers this week encouraging residents and fans to take to social media with messages about wanting to "read with the Rock!"

Library officials are also offering to help residents make a video at the library to send to Johnson. The flyer asks residents to flood Johnson with messages online Tuesday and Wednesday to build a "social media momentum."

I'm interested in seeing what type of traction it gains.
