Join us for an embryology adventure in partnership with 4-H! During our first week, we will learn about life inside an egg through a process called candling. Learn something fun and interesting every week until our chicks hatch. This will be a fun in-person indoor program. Masks are required and physical distancing measures are in place. Appropriate for students in grades 3-5. No registration required.
Swing by Anythink Perl Mack this month to check out our chicks. In collaboration with Adams County 4-H, we'll check in on fertilized chicken eggs in our incubator as they develop and hatch at the library. Life cycle activities will be available to take home for elementary-aged kids, while supplies last.

I had never seen a chick being born. Even when I was a young child living with my parents (and we had a chicken coop in the backyard), my only contact was when I was feeding them or gathering eggs. There was never a situation where I got to see a chick being born. I’m kind of sad about that now. To have the responsibility of making sure that the right conditions were met and that eggs were being properly taken care of to ensure birth would have been a wonderful life lesson for me.
Spring is my favorite time of year. I love everything about it. I love the clean smell of the rain, I love feeling the spring sunshine again, and I love seeing the first spring flowers peeking up through the snow. This spring, as the saying goes, has "come in like a lion," and I thought the snow would never end. But it seems it finally has, and summer is quick approaching. I've been itching to really get my hands dirty in the new community garden and start eating fresh food again.
