Cancelled -- Reading Room Arts: Birds!

Looking for more cool stuff to do?
We've got tons more fun events and programs in your area – sign up for our monthly enews here!

This event has been cancelled.

The "Reading Room Arts" program connects reading with arts & crafts — a beautiful combination! This month's topic is birds. Come to the park for a fun bird-themed craft and enjoy a selection of books on birds in Bird Park's new outdoor reading room. The reading room has adirondack chairs (for both big and little bodies) arranged under the pines and a table with different children's books on the selected topic. The books are only available during "Reading Room Arts" programs, but the reading room is available all spring and summer (as is the Little Free Library nearby). No registration required. Reading Room Arts: Birds! takes place every Saturday in April. The "Reading Room Arts" topic for May is Kites and for June, it's the Sun.

Questions? Contact Maura (mogara@thetrustees.org; 508.668.6136). For updates and announcements, please follow Bird Park programs on Facebook @friendsofbirdpark.

This program is inspired by READ all about it: ART in the PARK!, an art exhibit that will showcase over twenty 3D still or interactive installations by local artists inspired by books of their choosing. The exhibit is a partnership between the Walpole Public Library, The Walpole Council on Aging, and the Trustees. Installations will be on display at Bird Park and at the library, starting June 9.
