People from wolf conservation project Wolf Haven International will be at the Puyallup Public Library (324 S. Meridian, in downtown Puyallup) on July 20 to educate kids about wolves. (No live wolves will visit the library.)
At 1 p.m., children in grades kindergarten through grade 2 can experience Den Digs, where they will learn four components of wolf habitat – food, water, shelter, and space – through hands-on activities. Then at 3:30 p.m., children in grades 3 through 6, will take part in Wolf Café. They’ll learn how the wolf has adapted to its role as a key predator and they’ll be able to examine skulls, antlers, and horns.
This special library event is part of the Puyallup Library’s “Dream Big – Read!” summer reading program for children. Designed to keep young people reading during the summer, the program offers fun incentives to help children maintain their reading skills. All children who spend time reading, listening to an audio book, or being read to, can enter drawings for prizes. Plus, every child who reads (or is read to) at least 10 hours this summer will get a free book, a ticket to Northwest Trek/Point Defiance Zoo & Aquarium, and more.
The 2012 summer reading program runs June 25 through August 11. For more information call 253-841-5454 or visit PuyallupLibrary.org.
