How Will You Spend the Weekend?

Why not learn about fun bugs, swap for some new duds or enjoy live classical and Arab music at the library this weekend?

 

Saturday, April 6
Central Park Zoo Wildlife Theater Presents: Butterfly Boogie
Bugs aren't gross—they're great! Learn why with the help of a cockroach puppet. Then, take off on a 3,000-mile adventure with Wildlife Theater's interactive musical performance "The Tale of Flutterby and Piggle," which introduces children 6 and up to the interdependence of plants and animals. Space is limited; tickets will be distributed at 12 p.m. the day of performance at the Children’s Library Discovery Center on a first-come, first-served basis.
