Art Display- Also in honor of Citizen Science Month, the library will host a display of tapestries about Lummi Island by Nancy Simmerman. The three tapestries depict the impact of sea-level rise on Lummi Island: our island as it is today, at a 100-foot sea-level rise and, finally, what would be left of Lummi Island once all of the ice on the planet has melted. An interactive display, Nancy has provided a USGS map for reference and a notebook of additional information about sea-level rise and its impact on coastal regions worldwide.
StoryWalk – Library staff are very excited to be helping install a Storywalk (www.kellogghubbard.org/storywalk) along the Otto Preserve nature trail with the Heritage Trust.

Laminated pages from a children’s book are attached to wooden stakes, which are installed along an outdoor path. As you stroll down the trail, you’re directed to the next page in the story. Stay tuned for more information and an April launch date
