Happy Earth Sciences Week!

Did you know that this is “Earth Sciences Week.” Today, in fact, is National Cheese Curd Day and National Mushroom Day.

Did you further know that you can borrow “back pack” kits from the Conway Public Library to help you explore earth sciences in Conway and the White Mountains?

Created by Tin Mountain Conservation Center, and supported by L.L. Bean, we have back packs available on subjects such as birds, insects, mammals and so on. They include Items such as a compass, magnifying glass, binoculars, identification books, activity sheets, and maps.

Finally, did you know that the Conway Public Library's Henney History Room has a wide variety of resources for studying nature through history?

We do in fact, have several outreach programs we offer free to area schools and civic groups about the historical relationship between people and nature. We have programs that explore each season and cover topics such as ice harvesting in the winter, maple sugaring in the spring, farming in the summer and the "art" of the harvest for the fall.

If you would like to learn more, please contact us at the library.
