Swim into Shark Week!

It’s Shark Week on the Discovery Channel and Shark Week at LPPL. Come learn about these amazing creatures at the library. There will be different shark-themed activities all week, including Story Times, crafts, games, and green screen fun (don’t worry, this shark won’t bite!). Be sure to stop by the Fonthill Branch to see Jennifer’s collection of shark teeth and a shark jaw on display too. Enter to win a shark-themed basket at any branch and try to guess how many shark candies are in the jar. (Fun fact: a group of sharks is called a shiver.)
