Lady bug larvae are developing nicely and getting lots of attention at the circulation desk thanks to birthday boy, Lex. We love the sense of wonder & discovery for all of our patrons and visitors.

We’ll continue discovery & wonder opportunities with our Library Worms. They are settling into their bin thanks to help from Juliet Cormier. Shredded coir & newspaper and just the right amount of moisture. Thanks to our Summer Learning Grant. (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) The worms are just the 1st step in the possibilities for discovery and wonder we plan to share with our community this summer so stay tuned as we get ready to explore an “Ocean of Possibilities”.
