Are you celebrating Arbor Day? We will at the library on Friday with activities for kids. We will screen an episode of the new animated PBS series Nature Cat, have games, activity sheets, and fun stuff to take home. The fun starts at 1:00 p.m. (because it’s an early release day for the public school students).
Yes, we have a full slate of programs for you this week. Tonight (Thursday, April 21) we welcome Steve Swenson, Director of Conservation at the Aldo Leopold Foundation, for a 6:30 presentation on “Aldo Leopold’s Land Ethic.” Steve will share historical photographs and Leopold’s life story to illustrate his evolving relationship with the land. He will also tell us of the Foundation’s efforts to foster a land ethic among people throughout the country.
Finding your roots, family history, genealogy – these are all terms for one of America’s favorite hobbies: finding out more about the people in your family tree. It’s rewarding research, but it can get confusing. The Caestecker Public Library is here to help make things a bit clearer with Family History Fridays.
