We have been talking about the beauty and wonder of our oceans all summer. Now, let’s think about how we can help make our oceans even better! Unfortunately, there is a lot of plastic floating in our oceans due to man-made pollution. It’s time to reduce, reuse, and recycle so we can keep our oceans clean. We will hear a story about the problem of plastic pollution in the oceans, then take part in a fun plastic bottle craft challenge!

Note: Patrons over the age of two are required to wear masks when attending programs in the library.
