NORTH WEBSTER — North Webster Community Public Library celebrated the end of its Summer Discovery Program last week with a celebration pizza party for kids and teens who participated in summer reading clubs. A total of 316 kids and teens were registered, reading a total of 4,219 hours.

The traveling Smithsonian Water/Ways Exhibit will soon be leaving North Webster and moving on to its next stop, but patrons still have until Aug. 7 to view it. To ensure that everyone has a chance to experience it, the exhibit will be open to the public 1-3 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 1. While the exhibit will be open, library services will not be available that day.
Complementing the exhibit, two programs will be held next week. Phillip Anderson, founder of Rethink Consulting and IUPUI professor, presents his Up Stream, Down Stream, Sharing the Watershed program 6 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 5. Come and learn about the multiple purposes watersheds serve and the variety of activities that affect them and how others interact.
The following afternoon at 3:30 p.m. DNR Fisheries Research Biologist Matthew Linn presents his Fisheries in Our Lakes program. He will examine the native fish communities that inhabit Northern Indiana’s natural lakes and the habitat conditions required for them to thrive. Both programs are open to the public.
If you like to knit or crochet, come to Knit 1 Crochet 2 class 2 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 3, for a pattern exchange and bring a knitting pattern to trade with others. The group will also be finishing their July project or you can bring your own project to work on while visiting with other yarn crafters.
