The Georgetown Public Library has planned several kid-friendly events for October, including those that promote fire prevention, the benefits of vegetables and an insect show.
In recognition of Fire Prevention Week, a firefighter from the Georgetown Fire Department will attend story time at 10:30 a.m. on Oct. 9. He will talk to kids and give them special handouts. Kids of all ages are welcome.
Peter Rabbit will visit the library at 10:30 a.m. on Oct. 16. Farmer McGregor will bring a large variety of vegetables and talk to kids about how each is grown. Peter will ask the children about the vegetables they like and how they are prepared at home, as there are many different ways of enjoying vegetables in a multicultural community. Also, Peter will talk to the children about the nutritional benefits of vegetables. Finally a bee and the butterfly talk will demonstrate the importance of pollination in the production of vegetables and their seeds.
The program “You Just Have to Look,” which teaches kids about insects, will be held at 11 a.m. on Oct. 19. The show is for older kids, or those in second grade and higher, and adults are welcome, too. Participants will go outside, weather permitting, to look for insects after an indoor Power Point show.
