Have you ever heard of a Peep-o-Rama? It’s a diorama using marshmallow peeps! And what better way to build your set than with Rice Crispy Treats? Come join Miss Sue in the library’s kitchen to bake these delicious treats and play with them too, on Fri., March 8 at 4:00 p.m.

School is out for the day on March 15, so visit the library at 2:00 p.m., for an exciting animal show, presented by the New Hampshire Audubon Society. We will compare the similarities and differences between reptiles and amphibians in this look at New Hampshire’s scaly and slimy creatures. Live animals and props will demonstrate some amazing characteristics of these cold-blooded critters. There are a limited number of seats, so signup is required!
