Delaware Main Library
Help your child maintain their reading level over the summer! Children will be paired up with a teen volunteer or staff member for a 20-minute session of one-on-one reading practice.
Reading Buddies will be offered at the following times throughout the summer:
Wednesday and Friday afternoons from 2-3 pm
Registration is not required.
It’s a bird! It’s a plane! No, it’s a…hedgehog?!? That’s right! A super hedgehog! Grab your superhero cape and show off your muscles for this fast-paced comedy magic show featuring Sedgewick, a real live hedgehog! Erica and the kids will perform some magic while laughing and saving the world as they try to find “Sedgie the Hedgie.”
Laugh and learn with the Turtle Lady (Nancy Lockard) as she shares her passion for turtles. Participants will get plenty of touching time with more than 20 turtles, some bearded dragons, corn snakes and an amphibian or two. Always one of our most popular programs.
This program will include large animals, like sheep and goats.
“Reptiles and Amphibians, Oh MY!” Gator Dave will bring a variety of animals he has rescued, possibly including snakes, alligators, tarantulas, owls, cockroaches, hedgehogs and more. He has almost 20 years of experience working with zoos and educating children. He has a fun, dramatic presentation style.
