LaBelle's Barron Library "Bugged"
Tuesday Summer Program Featured Bugs This Week
LABELLE, FL. -- Lots of bugs got into the Barron Library Tuesday morning. And about 100 kids and parents were there to see them.
Tuesdays at 10:30 through August 20th, the library presents it's annual summer program for kids (and parents). This morning the guests were University of Florida IFAS researchers from Immokalee talking about insects.
Pan traps were set outside the library overnight, and this morning kids were invited to inspect what was caught, and hear more about Florida insects from the guests.
Next Tuesday, the Hendry-Glades Health Department will be on hand to talk about drug and tobacco prevention. Subjects in following weeks include bees with the Curtis Honey Store, making ice cream with Kathy Singleton, writers and writing with Brenda Goodwin, and the Child ID program by the Masonic Lodge.
