Winter is here and we will be talking about polar bears as we read Jenni Desmond’s new book, The Polar Bear. I’m sure there will be new polar bear facts to discover as we hear the story, share a snack and do a polar bear activity.

Kids Movie Day: Secret Life of Petssecret_life_of_pets_ver17

Thursday, January 19  from 3:15–5:00PM

Max is a happy terrier living with his owner in a Manhattan apartment complex. He is friends with all the pets in the building. Max’s owner disrupts his life by bringing home sloppy and inconsiderate Duke. Max and Duke don’t get along but they put their differences aside when they find out an abandoned bunny pet is gathering all of the other pets together to take revenge on the pets with homes. Kitty seems to be up to something other than sleeping.

Library staff will pick K-3rd grade kids up at school and escort them to the library for movie day. Due to the school dismissal time for 4th & 5th graders, transportation arrangements will need to be made for them to attend movie day. Parents, please remember a note needs to be sent to school giving permission for kids to walk over with library staff AND kids need to be registered at the library by 4:00PM Wednesday, January 18. Space is limited. Please contact the library if you have questions or to register for Movie Day at 740.924.3561 or email phankinson@alexandria.lib.oh.us.

Licking Park District for K-5th Graders

Thursday, January 26 from 3:15-4:30PM

An animal’s tracks may offer clues that help us to understand its behavior. Solving track mysteries can reveal an animal’s habitat and food preferences. In this activity, students will practice being a biologist by investigating wildlife through tracks, solving track mysteries, and creating a tracking ID book.

animal-tracksThe Alexandria Public Library is happy to be working with the Licking Park District to offer children’s programs on the fourth Thursday of the month for kids in K–5th grades. Parents, please remember a note needs to be sent to school giving permission for kids to walk over with library staff AND kids need to be registered by 4:00PM Wednesday, January 25. Space is limited. Due to the Intermediate school dismissal time for 4th and 5th graders, they will have to make their own transportation arrangements.
