More than 60 children and adults gathered in the children’s room on July 17 for an engaging storytelling event with author Geof Hewitt sponsored by the Children’s Literacy Foundation.  What a treat for each child to choose and take home two free books each to celebrate summer reading! Thank you Geof and the Children’s Literacy Foundation !

Screech & Hoot with live birds!

July 31 ~ 10:00am The Vermont Institute of Natural Science presents Screech & Hoot with live birds!  Why do owls hoot? What are those hawks talking about? How do scientists find out what birds are saying? Meet some of these talkative hawks, falcons, and owl up close! We’ll practice identifying raptors by their calls, learn what these vocalizations might mean, and how they are made.

Co-sponsored by the Bradford Public Library and the Bradford Parks and Rec. this free program will be held at the Bradford Elementary School to best accommodate the birds and audience!
