Project Chick

Thursday April 24, 2pm at Weaver

Meet chickens from Rhode Island’s own Casey Farm!  Learn about bird life cycles while helping to preserve the endangered Dominique chicken breed.  A farm educator will share a hands-on presentation about Dominique chickens and eggs.  All participants will be invited to pet one of the chickens.

Following this program, the farm educator will set up an incubator and a clutch of eggs in the Children’s Room.  Twenty one days later, the chicks will hatch at the library.


Panama Canal

Join us Monday April 28, 7 pm @ Weaver Library for a talk on the Panama Canal

Weaver Library is proud to partner with the East Providence Historical Society to present a slide talk by author Chip Bishop.  Bishop has just returned from a tour of Panama and the Panama Canal, which included the canal’s new expansion locks that are under construction. Chip’s debut book, The Lion and the Journalist: The Unlikely Friendship of Theodore Roosevelt and Joseph Bucklin Bishop has a Rumford and Canal connection and has been hailed by historians, reviewers, and readers alike.  Books will be available for purchase and signing.
