2 years ago

Summer's the right time for a visit to our Dinosaur Garden lawn.

When the sun's shining brightly, you can even find some shade under our big tent.

That's the subject of this week's community library column for the Eagle News Online/Star Review.

Have you visited the Liverpool Public Library’s big white tent on the Dinosaur Garden lawn? When you do, you’ll have it made in the shade.
Let’s Read, Liverpool! Oceans of Possibilities is now in full swing. The list of events for summer reading 2022 that will take place with the help of the protective shade thrown by the tent on the lawn is impressive.
Story Time in the Garden meets at 10 a.m. on Wednesday, July 6, 13, 20 and 27 as well as the first three Wednesdays in August. Host Miss Alison sets up for her songs and stories under the pavilion, but chairs for the children to age 5, families and caregivers are set up under the tent, in the shade. Perfect.
Crazy 8s Math Club, for kindergartners to fifth-graders, meets in the garden (and under the tent) at 9:30 a.m. on Thursday, July 7, 14, 21 and 28. For the Summer STEAM Club, it’s 2:30 p.m. on Tuesday, July 12, 19 and 26, for 5 and up and families, and Summer Maker Club, 2:30 p.m. Wednesdays July 6, 13, 20 and 27 for kids to 12 and families.
For one-time-only events this month, kids who love kitties and their families can call it purrfect for Let’s Build Cat Castles, at 11:30 a.m. Monday, July 18. We’ll put out boxes and supplies, you build the perfect castle to take home for your cat!
Of course, you can still venture out from under the tent to enjoy some sunshine with the LPL dinosaur statues Mari, Dhari and ZuZu, the StoryWalk along our paved path. the giant musical instruments, or the flowers in the Rain Garden or Natural Wildlife Habitat Garden if the mood strikes you, too.
The events will be moved inside if forced by bad weather, so don’t let rain halt your plans.
