Coming August 10th at 10:30 am: Appalachian Trail program/activities for children! Come visit with “Blissful” who has hiked the famous Appalachian Trail twice and in each direction! From bears to snakes, plants, trees, cool views, and funny hiking pictures, we will explore the trail from Georgia to Maine! Find out how Blissful cooked on the trail using a tiny stove and pot. Snuggle in a mummy bag in the woods. Create your own “trail name” through drawing and words to earn a carabiner to hook on your day pack or belt loop!
Blissful will also have copies of her book – Mountains, Madness and Miracles – 4,000 Miles Along the Appalachian Trail for sale to parents afterwards (appropriate for teens and parents)
The Oswayo Valley Memorial Library has partnered with the PA Lumber Museum to offer our patrons the Library Pass Program. Patrons will be able to come to the library and check out the pass which will provide a FREE entry to the museum and its events, programs, and activities for the borrower and all members of their household (those living at the same physical address). There are some event days that are not covered with the pass, so please check with the library before planning your visit.
