About the Event

This week there are 2 program options! We have activites at library AND an excursion to Round Spring Cave north of Eminence, MO.


Elementary students will be making their own cave paintings and petrified "trees" and

we'll enjoy a fitting "underground" treat - Dirt Cups (with gummy worms of course!).

For more cave-related fun we'll have self-dircted activities at the library all week.

All ages are welcome to check out our mineral sample collection under the microscope and

we'll have a free instructions for a science project of how to grow your own cave crystals at home!
