We are nearly through our 1st week of Summer Learning with Oceans of Possibilities theme thanks to our NH State Library. Funding for the NH State Library Summer Learning Grant is provided by the Jack and Dorothy Byrne Foundation and funds administered by the NH State Library and provided by the Institute of Museum and Library Services. Our summer learning grant provided aquarium, supplies and our very own, Axolotyl, Gillbert Clementine of Frost Free Library. Kids and adults alike have been pretty excited to get to know our adult male, albino specimen. Kids assist Rhi with testing the tank water for optimum conditions. Adults & kids step up to feed him red wrigglers from the worm bin. “Axolotl” questions is the name of the game. 21 kids are registered in the first week and Rhi and I will be up near Mountain View Mobile Home park on Thursday, July 7th at 11 am for our PopUp library visit Week II – Water & Pollution. Stay curious and wonder with us. Enjoy every minute of these fleeting summer moments. We are excited to be participating with the Federated Church – Conservation Committee during Plastic-Free July Plastic Free July – Be Part of the Solution. Being a collection point for Monadnock Lion’s Plastic Wrap Collection has really opened our awareness of packaging and the use of plastic. Plastic & Oceans are NOT a good combination. Let’s do our part for our neighborhood, our seacoast and our planet. Visit the link above for more info. Gillbert Thanks You.
