On May 9th, the library and volunteers hosted a birdhouse building event. This widely attended workshop was a great success and many birds now have homes! Thank you very much to all who volunteered their time and materials.
The 5th grade Science classes at Trumansburg Middle School researched the human body digestive system in mid-April. Their task was to create a poster that teaches the 6th, 7th, and 8th graders about the finer points of our GI track. They collaborated to make a poster that does more than instruct; it celebrates the wonders of the digestive system in colorful and anatomical perfection!
