Third graders from the Hunter Elementary School felt the wind from the wings of a turkey vulture and got up close to hawk, owl, alligator, and snake among other wild animals at the Hunter Public Library. Students and their teachers participated in the Wildlife Lecture by NYS Environmental Impact Award Winner Bill Robinson who demonstrates flight and captivates everyone with his raptors and reptiles educational lecture. You can find out more about his programs at www.robinsonswildlifelectures.com.
The Hunter Public Library will continue to operate on it’s SUMMER SCHEDULE until further notice.
Written for those who are just discovering the library or are still to discover it, this story is a Hunter Public Library adventure. Libraries are a place of discovery and community, a crucial link to information in today’s society, especially for people who are lifelong learners, need access to computers and Internet, and those who are seeking kindred spirits. Come visit the Hunter Public Library!
The library has expanded services with a new digital collection website experience just for kids. The main MHLS Digital Download Collection now has a separate site to provide a safe and easy browsing experience for kids.
Libraries recognize the need to provide a safe environment for kids to browse library materials. Just as the children’s section of the physical library has its own place, the same experience is now available in the digital collection for kids eBooks and audiobooks. Browsing can be done by subject, reading level or interest level. Check out the Kid’s eReading Room.
