Ice Age Trail Hike

This moraine boulder at Ravenswood was depostied by a retreating ice sheet.

Forces of nature formed Ravenswood’s landscape. Thousands of years ago ice chunks from melting glaciers created kettle ponds, bogs, and swamps. As a matter of fact, most of New England was buried under an enormous ice sheet that was more than a mile thick!

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.

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.
