April 22, 2015 is the 45th anniversary of Earth Day. Traditionally most people plant trees on this day, but we thought we would make a fun project that anyone can do – even your children. Our inspiration came from “Kids Chia Pet” at beautifulhomeandgardendiy.com
We used a 2-liter bottle for the “adult” and a 16-oz. bottle for the “child”. We also used grass seed instead of chia seed to make it more affordable. If you come into the library during the week of April 20-25 and bring your own empty bottle, we will have the supplies for you to make your own Earth Day pet.
School has started up again for fall 2014 and so have our After School Events on Early Release days. The Block (Lego) Club will meet on the first early release of the month @ 2:00 pm. The Art Club will meet on the second early release of the month @ 2:00 pm. If there is not a second early release for the month, Art Club will be postponed until the next month. Check our calendar for exact dates of each program.
On Halloween, Friday, October 31, 2014, the Tamarack District Library will be closing at 4:00 PM to allow the ghouls (girls) at the library time to prepare for a Haunted Halloween. From 5:00 to 7:30 PM they will have special treats and tricks for the area children. Bats and rumors are flying around town, and there’s talk of spooky activities such as “The Donuts of Doom,” scary crafts and a mysterious maze for children to master. Everyone is guaranteed a frighteningly good time! Plan to include your local library in your Halloween itinerary.
TDL’s Summer Reading programs starts June 17th. Stop in that day to sign up. Join us at 4PM to see the Critchlow Alligator Sanctuary put on a reptilian program.
