Owl Stories at the Marie Fleche Memorial Library
The Marie Fleche Memorial Library held Owl Stories on Wednesday, July 26 at 10 a.m. Kristen Volpi from the Cedar Run Wildlife Refuge read a story about owls and showed children a Screech owl and a Barred owl.
Volpi led the children through a skit where they pretended to be going through the forest and looking for owls in the trees.
Two owls were shown to the children, a Screech owl and a Barred owl. Once the owls came out, the children were excited and fascinated.
The turnout for the owl stories exceeded what was expected. Betty Velie, the library’s coordinator for events, said, “We originally had 31 who were signed up, but there were more that showed up.”
