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.
In order, to provide a safe and positive experience for everyone, the majority of our programs do require tickets. Tickets for programs are free and available 30 minutes prior to the performance. All children must be able to sit through the program without a parent. Seating is limited and programs will begin on time.
How Ticketing Works at Atascocita Branch Library:
We have chosen to hand tickets out 30 minutes prior. Patrons that are there at that time will most likely be able to attend. Because this is the time stated in our brochures, we do not form lines ahead of time. It would be a disadvantage to those who arrive according to the stated brochures. Those who arrive 30 minutes prior are given the same opportunity as those who arrive 45 or even 60 minutes ahead of time. It is a cattle call type of system.
We appreciate how much your children enjoy our programs, which is why we ask that only children attend so we may have as many in the room that safety allows. We wish to make this a fun event, and safety is a top priority in that fun.
It is advised that parents/caregivers stay in the library during the program for this provides us the ability to reach you if needed.
