Our Three Rivers Branch Library will be hosting its March community program, California Phenology: Nature’s Calendar, on April 16th at 6:30pm.
Lynn Firpo, intern with the California Phenology Project, will talk about Nature’s Calendar – when trees bloom, when birds nest and when leaves turn color in the fall. By studying long-term data on the local California Buckeye and the Blue Oak, we can observe some of the effect climate change has on plants and animals.
Three Rivers Branch Library is located at 42052 Eggers Dr., Three Rivers, CA 93271-0216. Please call (559) 561-4564 or visit the Three Rivers Library page for more information.
Starting in April, we will be having a series of Workshops
and a Book Club on, well, Money and Sense.Both the Workshops and the Book Club are, of course, free and no RSVP is necessary.
The Workshops are a basic financial literacy program
developed by the University of California Co-Op and funded by a LSTA and
California State Library Grant. This information would be beneficial to anyone
trying to live on a budget and will help them plan for the future. The materials will also be
available in Spanish.
