Two special programs will be held at the Pratt Public Library on Wednesday, June 26. In the morning at 10:30 a.m., Sara Latta, author of several books about forensic science will present "Bones: the Real Science Behind the TV Show" for 5th—8th graders.
Do you watch the TV show "Bones" and wonder how they put a name to a pile of bones some poor hiker found in the woods? Wonder how "everybody's favorite serial killer" and forensic expert Dexter uses blood spatter analysis to solve crimes?
Ms. Latta will show you how forensic experts solve real-life crimes. You'll learn how to tell the bones of a bear paw from a human hand (it's not as easy as you might think), estimate the age of the victim, and more.
That afternoon at 2 p.m. Brian Bartels, from Kansas Wildlife, Parks and Tourism will be presenting "Build Your Bird Brains", for kindergartners—4th graders. As well as learning about Kansas birds, participants will be building bird feeders out of peanut butter and pine cones.
A free movie is shown for all ages each Friday from 12:30 to 2 p.m. Children age 2 and under must be accompanied by an adult.
Adult summer reading program continues through Aug. 10, with weekly and monthly drawings.
