Calendar of Events
The Friends of the Library will be holding their annual meeting and potluck lunch on Monday, May 20 at 10:30 a.m. in the library Classroom. All members and those interested in becoming members are welcome. The annual meeting is an excellent time for new members to get involved, so we hope to see you there!
Sandra Cragin will be our featured artist this month. She says "Several months ago my "Orange Collection" was featured as artist of the month. This new collection I titled "In the Red". My work is 'non-objective', mainly acrylic, watercolor, papers, and inks." Sandra's works will be on display in the case on your right as you enter the library lobby. Enjoy!
~The Research Assistants from the City of Superior’s Environmental Services Division will be at the library to teach kids about the water cycle. You can help them demonstrate how water moves from the Earth, to the sky, and back down to where we use it. There will also be a craft that you can take home with you.
~Come visit with St. Louis River Alliance staff for a hands-on educational experience into the life of the piping plover. Trained piping plover monitors will bring the sandy beach to you with an interactive display of the piping plovers’ habitat, their nests, and predators they face. Hear about the plight of this extraordinary and rare migratory shorebird: what is being done locally to save this bird from extinction, and how you can help. Educational materials and fun projects will be provided!
~Science is great! Food is great! What happens when you mix up a batch of science and food? Awesome food science experiments, that’s what! Come and join us for hands on learning and fun as we explore the world of food science. This free program is open to youth of all ages and brought to you by Douglas County 4-H, Wisconsin Nutrition Education program and UW-Extension. We’ll see you in the kitchen!
~Come make dirt and eat it too! We will create a whimsical dessert using chocolate pudding, Oreos and gummy worms. Eat alone or share with a friend. Enjoy your snack while listening to a story.
