Who speaks for the trees?

The Lorax, of course, but so can you!  On Monday, March 5, the library will offer activities for all ages inspired by Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax during “I Speak for the Trees Day.”

From 9:30 to 8:30, stop by the Children’s Services.  Make a moustache on a stick at the entrance.  Go to the desk to pick up a list of questions for a scavenger hunt that will take you all over the library building in search of trees.  Turn in your completed sheet for a chance to win a prize!

Children can also enjoy a tree-themed storytime at 10:30 and make a truffula tree craft from 11:00 to noon.  Children of all ages are welcome; preschoolers must be accompanied by an adult.

Ron and Vicki Nowicki will present a program from 1:30 to 2:30 p.m. for adults and children 10 and up on how to “Be Your Yard’s Own Lorax” and transform your yard using the methods of permaculture.  You don’t need to sign up or get a ticket, just come to  Meeting Room A.  We’ll let people in until the room is filled.

Finish the afternoon by constructing your own Lorax between 2:30 and 4:30.  Stuff an old stocking with seeds and soil.  Water the seeds at home to watch its green “fur” grow!  Like the other programs, this one is a drop in (you don’t have to sign up ahead of time).  All ages are welcome; preschoolers must be accompanied by an adult.
