The Pember Museum collections are a wonderful example of the bio-diversity of the area 100 years ago, and also include speciments from around the world.
There are over 7,000 objects in the collections of the Pember Museum, covering a wide variety of natural history subjects. Nearly 80% of the collections are on display. Specimens include vertebrate (birds, mammals and reptiles) and invertebrate animals (insects, arachnids and sea life), rocks and minerals, fossils, some anthropological and historical materials, and a herbarium (dried plant speciments).
Our adult summer reading program includes this challenge! Stop in to the library July 1 or after to pick up your game sheet.
Your mission should you decide to accept it, is to complete a vertical, horizontal, or diagonal line by reading or watching the items in the boxes. Fill in the requested information for each. (No duplicates allowed!) Turn in the completed card for entry in a grand prize drawing (to be announced at end of summer reading program).
Join us at the Pember, 33 West Main St in Granville, for “Draw with Jen” July 11, July 18, and July 25 at 1PM. Jennifer Dashef will be sketching some of the animals in the museum and she would love to have you join her. This is not a class but a fun get-together. There will be some books about the animal you are drawing and depending on the age of the artist, possibly a story time, or some educational info on the animal.
