How Ticketing Works at Atascocita Branch Library:

Pepperoni and Worms Please!!! Monday, July 1st @ 3:30 pm

* Free Tickets Required

Tracing the origins of pizza as an example, this hands-on presentation illustrates the importance of "dirt" to kids, showing that we would all starve without healthy soil. We use hand puppets, pizza ingredients, and tubs of compost with live earthworms, beetles, & snails to prove our points. We finish up with live, dirt-loving box turtles. This will be a fun hands on program for children.

Todays program will require tickets.
