New Program Added for Children
Field Station Dinosaurs
When: June 20
Time: 4:00 P.M.
Where: Court Room
Ages: Young children to Grade 4.
The Dinosaur Troubadour from Field Station: Dinosaurs loves nothing more than sharing their knowledge of dinosaurs through song with children who are as interested in dinosaurs as he is. The Dinosaur Troubadour will be coming to the Butler Library for a story-time, sing-along, and a dance party. Joining him will be an unbelievably life-like roaring, breathing, 15-foot juvenile T-Rex. It will be an interactive, entertaining and surprising Paleozoic adventure so bring our camera for a photo opportunity. Call or stop by the Butler Library to register.

The Butler Library is a Baby Box Distribution Center
Baby Boxes are inspired by the maternity packages given to all expectant mothers in Finland. They double as a baby starter kit and a safe sleep space for infants. They are an initiative that is new to the United States in an effort to equip expecting families with vital parenting education and resources. The boxes themselves are free to all expectant mothers through the Baby Box University and include new parent essentials such as diapers, breast pads and more.
Email firstname.lastname@example.org for support if you have any trouble with the Baby Box University process.
