Are you smarter than a caveman?

Greetings from the library!

On Tuesday, we were visited by our paleontologist friends Mike and Roberta Straka! They presented the program Mastodons, Cavemen and Bears-Oh My! We learned about the Ice Age and life of cavemen! We saw a casting of a 60,000 year old Neanderthal man, fossils and early tools of humans! We even played a game, "Are You Smarter Than a Caveman?" And guess what! We were! Check out all the fun we had!

A special thank you to the Lackawanna Heritage Valley Authority for providing funding support for this really great program!

Join us next week on Monday for a visit from the Everhart Museum!

Thursday, June 23rd, Thomas Deerheart will be joining us again for Around the World Drumming with Deerheart! Children will learn simple drum beats with a chance to try a number of different drums! All ages are welcome! Program starts at 5:30 pm! Call 207-0764 to register!

See you at the library,

Miss Glynnis
