Pictures and Planets

Children -  have you been to the beach this summer or do you plan to go soon?  If so, we may have just the craft for you on Tuesday, July 12 at 2:30 pm.  We'll be decorating a foam picture frame shaped like a sand castle.  It will be perfect for framing a picture of you and your family at the beach...or the pool...or the sprinkler...or the bathtub!  Tickets are required.  They are free and available starting thirty minutes before the program.

On Wednesday, July 13 at 2:30 pm, you can take a trip to space when local children's book author, Marianne Dyson, presents "Touring the Solar System".  Ms. Dyson worked for NASA as a flight controller.  She is the author of several space books: Space Station Science, Home on the Moon, Space and Astronomy and other publications.  She will talk about the solar system and what we can see in the summer sky.  After the program, she will be doing a book signing where copies of her books can be purchased to benefit the Friends of Freeman Library.
