Fifty members of the Patawomeck tribe will recreate one of their villages at the library. On the front lawn, you’ll smell venison and fish roasting on an open fire, hear live Patawomeck music, explore a longhouse, sit in a 13-foot canoe, and see Patawomeck dancing. You and your family can pound cornmeal, play Indian football, play drums, and meet a Pocahontas reenactor. Inside the theatre, you’ll see artifacts that are 10,000 years old, learn how regalia is made, hear Patawomeck storytelling, watch a movie, and make crafts.
Save the date: Saturday, August 1, from 9:00-3:00 at Headquarters Library. Rain or shine.
Night falls in the woods. As some creatures start to rest, others begin to hunt. One predator in particular has a preference for trickery. Prepare yourself for Hoot Owl: Master of Disguise!
Our ambitious bird of prey will go to any lengths to catch his meal. He sees a delicious-looking rabbit and quickly fashions a gigantic carrot costume. Surely the bunny will fall for this clever camouflage...until it hops away.
Looking for some cutting-edge reads? Some of the funniest, most irreverent and daring titles the library has can be found in our picture book section. The medium, both short and visual, allows authors and illustrators to take a nutty idea, add great artwork, and build a book that makes reading both fun and funny.
Elephant woke up incredibly grumpy, but a surprise present left on the doorstep changes his attitude. The box contains a most elaborate hat, and Elephant's frown turns upside down. Hooray for Hat!
