Art Story Time
Sep 24 @ 5:30 pm – 6:00 pm

Art Story Time.

Children 4 and up, or 3 years old with an adult, hear a story and make art that relates to the story. The language of the Principles and Elements of Art are emphasized. Artists are introduced as a form of history. Children experiment with various media while making art!

For many children this will be their first group experience without a parent. To make it a happy one, we ask your cooperation and assistance in preparing your child for going into Story Time without you. Reassure him/her that you will remain in the library. If separation is a special problem for you, feel free to stay or speak with the Youth Librarian about your concerns. Please keep coats and personal items with you rather than having the child bring things into the room. No toys, please. Greet your child promptly as Story Time ends.

Your Inner Fish
Sep 25 @ 1:30 pm – 3:00 pm
Have you ever wondered why the human body looks the way it does? Why we walk on two legs instead of four? Why we can see in color but have a lousy sense of smell?
 
Your Inner Fish looks into the past to answer these questions and more. This three-part PBS video series is based off the best-selling book of the same name by evolutionary biologist Neal Shubin, and it reveals a startling truth: Hidden within the human body is a story of life on Earth.
 
Shubin is a prominent paleontologist, evolutionary biologist and popular science writer famous for discovering Tiktaalik, the “missing link” that made headlines around the world in 2006. Participants will watch one part of the video series in each of three sessions, as well as discuss the video and the book.
 
The public is welcome to join this discussion which will be led by Holly Straub Ph.D., hosted in partnership with OLLI (Osher Lifelong Learning Institute).
 
A limited number of copies of the book ‘Your Inner Fish’ will be available for checkout at the Vermillion Public Library. Once you are finished with the book, kindly return it so others may have a chance to read it before the discussion!
