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.

Teens and Tweens: Go Retro with Extreme Tie Dye & Retro Crafts

Go back in time with a twist this week as our teen and tween programs have a retro theme. First up is Extreme Tie Dye on Wednesday, June 19th at 3pm. Suit up and spray your own tie dye shirt. Please bring a prewashed white cotton t-shirt. We will have some on hand but we can not guarantee sizes.

On Thursday, June 20th at 3pm, we will show you a new twist on Retro Crafts like perler beads and shrink plastic. Learn how to turn childhood craft materials into art.

Programs are appropriate for ages 10-18 years old.

Texas Snakes @ the Library

* Tickets required

Snakes in the library? You bet!  This is a great opportunity for children to learn why we need snakes in our environment and what to do if they see a snake.

According to Texas A & M University, "The great state of Texas is home to 37 different species of snakes, and
surprisingly, only four of those are venomous."
