Monday, Oct. 23 at 5:30 p.m.: A Davis Mountains State Park ranger and volunteer will present a family program about Fort Davis Turtles for kids 5 and older and their parents! (See flyer above, at left, for details.) Ranger talk on local turtles; kid-friendly craft time making a turtle out of pine needles; and storytime. Class is limited to the first 15 participants, so please RSVP to
Wednesday, Oct. 25 at noon: Join local writer Barney Nelson, who has a special interest in genealogy, as she teaches you how to make and publish a family history book. Instead of dividing up treasured photos, make a book for each family member. She will have samples to display.
Thursday, Oct. 26 at 2 p.m.: Free screening of a classic horror movie, "Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde," starring Spencer Tracy, Ingrid Bergman, and Lana Turner. The 1941 release is rated G. Free popcorn.
Saturday, Oct. 28 from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.: Creepy Crawlies (Critters you are scared of but probably shouldn't be!) Stop by and see live snakes (native and exotic), tarantulas, lizards, rats, scorpions and more. Learn about these animals and their roles in our ecosystems. All ages can learn something from this event and have some fun at the same time. (Critters will be in cages to ensure safety of all.)
Monday, Oct. 30 at 2 p.m.: Teach or learn a craft, or just enjoy working on a project at our open-ended sit & stich time. All crafters welcomed. You are welcome to bring snack and/or beverage (lidded cups only, please).
