“Nature Up Close” Insects! Arachnids! Myriapods! Oh My!

What can you discover when you look up close and study? You will build the best shelter for a bee or butterfly.
This program is free for all, courtesy of the Explora Children’s Science Museum and the library.

You do not need to be a library patron to participate but you will need to pick up a bag of materials so your children will be able to perform the experiments.

There will be 15 bags available (one per child) distributed on a first-come basis on the following days:

  • Sat., 5/15 (1-5)
  • Tues., 5/18 (3-7)
  • Thurs., 5/20 (10-2)

To reserve a bag, please email us at childrens@placitaslibrary.com . Be sure to include each child’s name, age, and the name of a parent, grandparent, or guardian. We can request more bags if needed if given enough notice. So please let us know soon if you are planning to join us on May 22.
