Summer Library "Make A Splash!" Celebration Underway At Paynesville Branch
The "Shell and Sea-life Collection" display, featuring 100 sea shells donated to the Paynesville Public Library decades ago, debuted at the first "Fun Thursdays!" event June 17. The collection, which had been housed in cardboard boxes for years, was sorted, identified, labeled and arranged into an informative and colorful hands-on display by Friends of the Paynesville Public Library president Molly Zimmerman and her family. It will remain on display at the library through the end of August.
"Fun Thursdays!" events will continue every Thursday through Aug. 12; upcoming events include a cartooning lesson from author/illustrator Gary Harbo, a program featuring water science projects and crafts, and "Frog Symphony!" and "Water Wonders" presented by St. John's Arboretum staff. Register children ages 5 - 10 for these events by calling (320.243.7343), stopping by the library, or registering online at the Paynesville Branch web page.
