Something Else Dangerous at the Library

owlThis month, we explore creatures of the night at our Danger Club, Saturday, February 26, 2:00 p.m. Vampires and werewolves, sure,  but also real creatures.

For instance, did you know: rhinoceros are nocturnal?

That if you had eyes comparable to the size of an owl’s, they would be as big as a grapefruit and weigh five pounds?  

That there is a whole other category -crepuscular – of creatures that are most active during dawn and dusk  and that accounts for all those mosquito bites you get around that time.

We will learn about the creatures of the night,  play bat and moth,  hear a spooky story and turn a T-shirt into a ninja headwrap. If you’re between 8 and 12, come in for a dangerously good time.

And for more information and ideas about the night,  check out Night Science for Kids: Exploring the World after Dark.
