Birds are singing and spring flower buds are breaking through the dirt. The earth is waking up from its long winter’s nap just in time to celebrate Earth Day.

The World’s first Earth Day took place in 1970 making this year the 51st Anniversary. You and your family can help the library celebrate Earth Day the entire month of April by doing activities to better our earth.

The Children’s Department will be handing out log sheets with activity ideas and a map to color in. Activities include taking a nature walk, making a craft out of recycled items, looking at the stars and many more. For every activity you complete you can color in a continent or a body of water on your map. Once your entire earth has been colored bring it in to the Children’s Department to pick up a small prize. Log sheet with activity ideas and a map are also available for download HERE.

We look forward to seeing your map and hearing all your stories about what you did to help our Earth!
