Join us as Professor Bugman brings his Hide-A-Bug STEAM program to the library!

"YIKES!!  A roach!!  These things are scary!  You know what's even scarier?  Well, EVERYTHING is when you're a big, fat, tasty insect. 

Animals need shelter, and it's up to your children to use our forest-gathered materials to build a shelter fit for a bug.  

Not just any bug, but our residential judge, Mr. Cranky B. Cockroach!  

Will he approve of your shelter and find safety within, or will he hiss and make his way to more suitable real estate?"

 

This event is hands-on fun!  Great for children ages 6+ 

Spots are limited, registration is required!
