In this new program on the first Thursday of the month, we will do an evening of arts and crafts for kids. This month we will have some fun doing projects with puffy paints (and we will make the paints ourselves!). Please pre-register for this program by calling the library.
This performance will take place at Davis Park and is made possible through a grant from the Catskill Watershed Corporation. Olive Free Library will also have a booth at Olive Day where you can buy cookbooks, gardening books, and children’s books at great prices. We will also have raffle baskets to support the library.
This CIRCUS is an allegorical tale featuring gorgeous masks and puppet characters, a bio-morphic set design and live original music. The story follows Malakai, the River messenger and water carrier who travels between Mountain Peaks and the Deep Blue Sea. Along his journeys Malakai encounters a host of creatures, including a lyrical sea turtle, a fast-talking crow, a pair of industrious beavers, beds of filter-feeding oysters, and schools of migrating fish. Each animal offers insights into their particular role in a watershed’s ecosystem services. When the old man falls ill his granddaughter Rachel must rise to the challenge and help restore her grandfather, the River, back to health.
We took some pictures of the 4-H kids planting our pollinator garden in early May, and then got some pictures on Monday, June 29, what progress!
