A little something for everyone...

The Truro Public Library likes school vacations, too! We’ll explore Kitchen Science with Lynne on Tuesday, February 19 at 10:30 a.m., using common substances, found in the kitchen, to create a chemical reaction and produce a new or changed substance! On Wednesday, February 21, at 3:00 p.m., we’ll watch The Lego Ninjago Movie and eat popcorn. Storytime—stories, songs, fingerplays and crafts for ages birth to five year olds—will take place as usual, on Thursday, February 22, at 10:30 a.m., and on Friday, February 23, at 1:30 p.m. we will learn about Nature’s Engineers with Lynne—how animals are great engineers who know how to build to last! What do burrs, a kingfisher’s bill, and  turkey vultures have in common? They’ve all served as inspiration for human innovation. Learn about animal structures, biomimicry, and how animals have inspired engineers. We hope you’ll join us over February school vacation!  Please note: There is no Truro Tots Playgroup on Monday, February 19.

On Saturdays, February 24, March 7, and March 14 from 10:00 to 11:30 a.m., the Truro Public Library presents “Working with Clay,” a special kids workshop series with Brian J. Taylor and Paul Wisotzky, in collaboration for the Castle Hill Center for the Arts. We have twelve spots for children 7 years and older. In the workshop we will make masks, whistles, and rattles.  The first two sessions will be focused on making.  For the third session we’ll wrap up making, and spend most of the session decorating.  The instructors will take the decorated work to Castle Hill Center for the Arts, where they will be fired.  Finished projects should be ready for pick up about a week later.  Please call the Library at 508-487-1125 to sign up! The Working with Clay workshop is funded by the Friends for the Truro Library and by a grant from the Truro Cultural Council, a local agency supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council. welcomes thoughtful comments and the varied opinions of our readers.
