How much fun can you pack into one half hour?
Visit Rodman Public Library from 12:30 to 1:00 p.m. for Book Fest on any Thursday between June 9 and July 14 and find out.
Intended for kids of all ages, the six-week run of Book Fest will include lots of laughs on June 16 and June 23 when RPL’s own children’s librarians will provide skits, music and dancing, trivia, and interactive stories. Pirates and a reenactment of the story “The Pout-Pout Fish” is planned during one of those weeks as the Oceans of Possibilities summer reading program continues at Rodman Library.
During the other weeks, special guests are expected to visit RPL for Book Fest, including the University of Mount Union’s Huston-Brumbaugh Nature Center on June 9 when Adam Zorn, program manager of the facility, presents Backyard Mammals. He will have skulls and furs on hand as he discusses common mammals that kids may see around their own homes. He will also talk about some less common wildlife that occasionally pass through.
On June 30, Raptor Hallow Sanctuary will present Birds! Birds! Birds! The program introduces young learners to the world of birds and what makes them special. Visitors will also get to interact with touchable items such as feathers, eggs, and more.
On July 7, the Goldfish Swim School will visit RPL to talk about water safety.
On July 14, a virtual program from the Greater Cleveland Aquarium is on the schedule.
No registration is required to attend Book Fest.
