Family Service Day on the Farm
Ages:7-11

Many children want to help animals on a farm. Kids can experience what it's really like to roll up their sleeves and get a little dirty on a farm - cleaning cages and mucking stalls. Adult-child pairs are able to participate as hands-on volunteers at the MSPCA. Each group participates in three activities: an animal care chore, support chores, and an educational presentation that includes a fun activity and an animal meet and greet. Animal care chores include cleaning cat cages, walking gentle dogs, or mucking horse stalls. The program provides a fun and educational opportunity for families to make a meaningful contribution to the MSPCA's animal care efforts.

Registration is required.

Fall Series: Survival StoriesThe human capacity for survival is amazing. Much literature is devoted to survival storiesmen, women and even children beating the odds to make it through impossible situations against improbable odds. Sometimes people act with nobility, sometimes they do not. This fall we explore several tales of survival, both fiction and non-fiction.

Tough Love - Adventures in Socializing Kittens

Hello foster families!

Ever wondered what happens to those scared little kittens that are trapped or caught from the outdoors and brought into the shelter?

Ever wondered how they are carried off by their foster mom, hissing and spitting, and come back to the shelter purring and ready for some cuddles?

If you've ever been curious about the wonderful world of socializing kittens, then this is your chance to satisfy your curiosity! Our very own Michelle Kelly will be hosting a class specifically on unsocial kittens.

If this interests you at all, please come by! Taking this class does not mean that you HAVE to foster unsocial kittens, but it would be absolutely amazing if you were willing!

If you have any further questions, feel free to email either foster coordinator. Please RSVP!

Thursday Evening Book Discussions
Spring Series: Africa -- Colonialism & BeyondThe history of Africa has been overshadowed over the last 200 years by the European colonization that dominated all parts of the continent. This is a huge story, and one that is often not very well understood by Americans. We take a very brief look at the experience of Africa from the perspective of colonialism and its effect on blacks and whites.

Toight's selection: The Poisonwood Bible by Barbara Kingsolver
In 1959 an American missionary and his family move to the Belgian Congo. They carry with them everything they believe they will need from home, but soon find that all of it is calamitously transformed on African soil. What follows is an epic of one family's tragic undoing and remarkable reconstruction over the course of three decades in postcolonial Africa.

This is an intensely moving journey through a white African girl's childhood. Fuller was brought up in Africa during the Rhodesian civil war (1971-1979), a world where children over five learned how to load a rifle, clean all the guns in the house, and shoot-to-kill. The narrative focuses on the wartime relationships between blacks and whites through a child's watchful eyes.

Take Your Child to the Library Day

Take Your Child to the Library Day is an international initiative that encourages families everywhere to take their children to their local library. This event raises community awareness about the importance of the library in the life of a child and their family.

Have you lost your library card? Please stop by a service desk and apply for one. Lost card replacements will be free of charge on 2/7/15 only. There will also be a door prize drawing and light refreshments for families attending these events. Come join the fun!
