Ants are Hard at Work in St. Michael

Ants are Hard at Work in St. Michael

The St. Michael Library is hosting some very busy workers this summer.
Hard at work at the front circulation desk are these Harvester Ants. This year's theme for the Summer Reading Program, "Dig into Reading," was a perfect chance to showcase one of nature's most tenacious diggers: the ant.  Note the extensive tunneling that's taken place after just one day! It will be interesting to watch these critters over the next few weeks to see how they adapt to their new home.
Registration for the Summer Reading Program began June 10 and runs through Aug. 10. Babies, toddlers, kids and teens all have a reading program they can register for and have chances to win prizes. Many exciting events are scheduled and are listed on the griver.org/events page. Check it out!
