Wiggly Worms and Lovely Ladybugs

July’s Greenie Gardeners brings us two fascinating garden creatures: worms and ladybugs.  Worms do the heavy duty, underground work of composting the soil while ladybugs help us with eating plant-destroying aphids from our gardens.

These monthly program are free to register for.  Recommend for ages 4 and up.  To register for these programs, please visit or call the Children’s Department at 846-1573.

Wiggly Worms: Saturday, July 21st at 11am

We’ll be learning all about the lives of worms – how they wiggle, what they eat, and how they help us – through stories and hands-on experiences with these amazing wigglers.  A take-home craft is included in this storytime, followed by a trip to our Community Garden and composter in the back of the library.

 

Lovely Ladybugs: Saturday, July 28th at 11am

They do so much for us than just look pretty.  We’ll explore the world of ladybugs through stories and take a close-up look at them with our Creature Peepers before venturing out to the Children’s Garden to release a whole jar of ladybugs into the gardens!

Saturday, June 9th at 11am: “Going Buggy” Story and Craft Program

It’s “good bugs” vs. “bad bugs” in this buggy version of Greenie Gardeners.   We’ll learn that there are good insects and bad insects for our gardens, and what some of the different kinds are.  This bug themed program will have thematic bug stories,  action rhymes, and a craft of designing your our own bug box.
