To celebrate National Kite Month, Porter Branch will once again display a variety of fabulous kites suspended from the ceiling. Enjoy these colorful beauties the entire month of April, and learn more about kites, how to fly them, and how to make them.
The exhibition will be provided by Stafford resident, Mike Clark, a lifelong kite enthusiast. Mr. Clark has more than 1,400 kites in his collection, including single, double, and quad line kites, as well as stunt kites. He started collecting and making his own kites when he was a child.
School-aged children, teens, and adults are welcome to join us at Porter Branch on Saturday, April 29, 9:30-12:00, to build, decorate, and (weather permitting) learn to fly your very own kite! Please sign up at the Research Desk, or call 540-659-4909.
