East Side Library
Improve your communication skills by learning how to express yourself with the arts! Youth will discuss the benefits of journaling and explore how journaling can play a role in their lives. Youth will then get the opportunity to construct and design their own personal journals.
Preregistration is recommended, but not required, for the ISU Extension events. You may do so at dmpl.org or by calling 283-4152 ext. 3.
Are lizards slimy? What kind of snakes reside in Iowa? Do salamanders use their noses to smell? Learn the facts and myths about reptiles during this program about our scaly neighbors in the wild. Learn about their adaptations, their diet, how they smell, see, and move, and much more. You may even get a chance to meet a real reptile! Learn the truth about the critters that people love to hate.
The hooting of an owl while on a night hike. The howl of a coyote in the woods. A stray cat’s meow. All these sounds tell a story - if you’re listening right! Our friends from the Blank Park Zoo are bringing zoo critters to the East Side Library as they talk about the way that animals communicate. You can learn a lot through the sounds and movements animals make. Learn something new and meet some interesting animals during this interactive program!
