Black Bear, Black Bear, Where Do You Sleep?
Salem Public Library, Hamlin

Friday, February 26th, 6 PM

A free program for children and adults about where our animal neighbors go in the winter, will be held on Friday, February 26th at 6 PM at the Salem Public Library in Hamlin. Learn about hibernation, migration, and other ways creatures cope with the cold months of winter.

Have you ever wondered how a duck can swim in icy water, or how a deer can survive curled up in the snow? This program may help us to understand these mysteries.
The presenter will be Northeast PA Audubon member and artist, Katharine Dodge, who will have her book “Sweet Dreams of the Wild” available for a donation to Audubon. Activities will include coloring a bookmark and making pine cone treats for the winter birds.

All are welcome. Children under eight should be accompanied by an adult. To register, contact the library at (570) 689-0903.
