Say goodbye to the cold and celebrate the arrival of warmer weather here on the Farm! While we often associate eggs with the Easter Bunny, in many cultures eggs symbolize new life and are tied with the coming of spring. At this event, we celebrate spring, new life on the farm, and the bounty of fresh eggs produced by our hens.

Read to a DOG: Reading Sessions with Blu (Grades 2-6)

Get kids interested in learning to read by having them read to a dog named Blu!

A dog in the library? Yes! Welcome to Blu, a black lab therapy dog who needs some doggie down time. Children can sign up for a 10 minute session to read to Blu in a comfy section of the library. The ages of the readers can vary - if your child wants to flip through a picture book and tell Blu about it, that is just fine! It’s great for Blu, who gets some snuggle time, and great for the children who get to practice their oratory skills with a very special pup.

Debbie and Friends at the Regent Theater

Debbie & Friends use original songs to tell stories that children know and love.

A live Debbie & Friends show is a trip for the entire family—a joyful jaunt through a variety of styles, from straight-ahead pop, to country, to rock, to reggae, all delivered by a band of musicians who are clearly there because they love it. Kids become the Big Bad Wolf and blow the house down, fix Rosie’s wrong rhymes, and test their skills with the Simon Says Song. Like everyone’s favorite teacher, Debbie connects with her audience and respects kids for the people they are, and her warmth is sincere and her radiance downright contagious.
