Critters to visit Bay Village Library

Bay Library will "adopt" a woodchuck from Lake Erie Nature & Science Center if participants in their Summer Reading Game reach 18,000 total reading hours.

This year's Summer Reading Game theme is Build Your Brain, but what about our animal friends and what kinds of construction THEY do? Families with children ages 3 and up are invited to join a visitor from the Lake Erie Nature and Science Center on Tuesday, July 16, at 11 a.m. and meet a few animal builders. 

From turtles that carry their homes on their backs to raptors who build their own homes, have fun getting up close and personal with these wild animals. It's always a fun, informative time when the animals from the Nature Center come to visit – you won't want to miss it!

And while we're talking about animals, don't forget that everyone's reading hours will go toward the adoption of the woodchuck at the Lake Erie Nature and Science Center. The goal is 18,000 hours of total reading time in order to adopt it for two years. So far the hours add up to 2,200 hours, so there is a ways to go before the Reading Game ends on August 3.

Bring in your gameboard to be stamped and as they are finished we'll be sure to put the hours toward the adoption. Watch the hours add up on the display when you stop in!
