Goodbye, Chicks: Project Peep Ends at Atascocita This Saturday

On Saturday morning, we will say goodbye to our baby chicks as they go home to the Blue Star Ranch. Project Peep has been an amazing experience from seeing the chicks hatch to tracking their progress every day. You can say goodbye today and tomorrow morning at the library. 

To learn more about Project Peep, you can read David Cherry's article here.

Deussen Park Outreach: Smart Animal Series

We sure learned a lot last Tuesday at the second program in  the Smart Animal series presented by Deussen Park's Traveling Naturalist...Animals we were able to see and/or touch included a walking stick, a scorpion (colored turquoise when lit up by flashlight in the dark for us), a chameleon, a hog-nose snake and a rat too! Some of the animals we learned about were gorillas, who have the ability to learn sign language, and the squirrel who has a curious behavior of dragging snake skins around his home for  scent repellant properties to ward off predators. The next program in the series will be  "Animal Arguments" on Wednesday, March 14 at 1:30 pm during Spring Break.  "Animal Engineers" will be the last visit on Tuesday, April 18 at 1:30 pm.

We Are Making Tornados at the Katherine Tyra @ Bear Creek Library

tornado in a jarThis week come visit our STEAM station, located in the children’s area, to make a tornado in a jar. In a jar? Yes, in a jar.    Funnel all your energy into being a weather detective as you shake your twister into existence. 

Once you finish having fun creating funnels, pick up an “I Made a Tornado” sticker and share your observations with others.  We have instruction sheets to take home, so that you can shake things up there as well.

Come for the funnels and stay for the fun at the Katherine Tyra @ Bear Creek Library branch.
