Event Description

Registration & Kit pick-up: April 13-19
Virtual Event: April 21 @ 4 pm

To celebrate Earth Day, join us in a Virtual Storytime and Craft using Zoom software. We will read a story about how sea turtles are affected by polluted oceans, discuss ways we can make everyday changes to reduce pollution, and complete a fun craft together. The craft will involve learning a weaving pattern called Ojo de Dios, or God's Eye. A librarian will guide you through the process of weaving yarn in a God's Eye pattern to create a woven turtle shell for a popsicle stick turtle. All supplies will be provided in the kit. If you are unable to attend the zoom meeting, a link to a helpful tutorial video will be provided in the confirmation email.

Any packets that are not picked up by 8 pm on April 19th will be made available to the waiting list.
