Ferrets in the Library !

    Here come the ferrets !  Members of the Houston Area Ferret Association will bring an assortment of these entertaining creatures for you to meet and hold.  Learn some history of ferrets, the basics of taking care of them and see a demonstration of nail clippig and ear cleaning.  Cheer for ferrets as they compete in a paper bag escape race.  Meet the ferrets up close as you get to hold them and see how much wiggly fun they are.

Honey Dew the Clown

Dinosaur Fossil Program

Fossils were the focus of this week's children's program.  Dr. Neal Immega shared some of his fossil collection with young readers and talked about going on dinosaur digs.  If you happen to be up near Fort Worth, you can see actual footprints at the Dinosaur Park. The Brazos River also still yields dinosaur fossils even today.  That is where Dr. Neal tripped over the large fossil of a knee bone that the children are examining in the photo.  After the talk, children were able to examine the fossils up close and colored a mini dinosaur flip book created by Mrs. Immega.
