Ohio County Public Library sets variety of activities

The Ohio County Public Library has announced several upcoming events, including:

  • “Salad People,” 3:30 p.m. Thursday.

Children will learn about healthy eating by using fruits and vegetables to create their own “salad person.”

Featured reading: “Rah, Rah, Radishes” by April Pulley Sayre.

  • “Create Your Own Jurassic Amber Fossil Soap,”?3:30 p.m. July 25

Amber is fossilized tree resin. Because it originates as a soft, sticky tree resin, amber sometimes contains animal and plant material as inclusions.

Participants will make a soap version of amber with some mini bugs trapped inside and read “Fossils Tell of Long Ago” by Aliki.

  • Ventriloquist Mark Wade, 3:30 p.m. July 30

Meet Mark the ventriloquist and his Head Engineer in Charge of Digging, Edgar Beaver. Edgar is in search of the secret library buried somewhere in the vicinity, and he’s not going to stop digging until he finds the treasure.
