Shreve Memorial Library Hosts Nature Programs during Oceans of Possibilities SRP

Shreve Memorial Library invites readers of all ages to discover “Oceans of Possibilities” during its 2022 Summer Reading Program. The Summer Reading Program offers fun programs for the entire family. Throughout the summer, everyone is encouraged to enjoy a variety of interactive nature programs inspired by the “Oceans of Possibilities” theme. Representatives from Walter B. Jacobs Memorial Nature Park and Steve’s Snaketuary will visit Shreve Memorial Library branches throughout Caddo Parish, teaching library patrons about local wildlife and nature. The programs are free, and nature lovers of all ages are encouraged to attend.

Walter B. Jacobs Memorial Nature Park will teach participants about life cycles using different life cycle toys, photos of plants, insects, and mammals, and some collections of actual insect eggs. Attendees will investigate them with a magnifying glass, see and touch different species of spider egg sacks, bird eggs, and place stages of different life cycles in correct order. A discussion of comparisons will follow, including a “Match the Babies with Moms” activity, along with storytime. Walter B.
