Come see “The Police and Some of their Tricks” 2-3 p.m. Wednesday in the Library Meeting Room. Superior Police Officer Joel Markon presents a mixed bag of card tricks, chemistry experiments and fossil discoveries. Suitable for children ages 5-12. The program is free and no registration is required.
Our program “Bringing Back the Piping Plover, Part I” starts at 2 p.m. Thursday in the Meeting Room. St. Louis River Alliance staff provide a hands-on educational experience into the life of the piping plover. Trained piping plover monitors will bring the sandy beach to you with an interactive display of the plovers’ habitat, their nests, and predators they face. Educational materials and fun projects are provided.
Our Summer Reading Program continues 2-3 p.m. July 23 with “The Frog Guy” — aka Wisconsin naturalist Randy Korb. Participants hold, feed, water and listen to the calls of many native species of frogs, toads and salamanders — from tiny spring peepers to big bullfrogs.
Meet, greet, and read your favorite book to Tanzy, the certified therapy dog. Tanzy, a Shetland sheep dog, doesn’t care if you make mistakes. He likes to listen. “Read to a Dog” runs every other Friday through the end of August. Tanzy’s next visit is at 11:30 a.m. July 26 in the Children’s Room.
