Dover Librarians welcome children to their next events and there will be farm animals on Monday evening.
They will celebrate the community reading of EB White’s “Charlotte’s Web”. In addition to crafts, games, and activities, Londonderry’s Carriage Shack Farm will have animals to meet.
There will be goats, sheep, chickens, rabbits and a pig.
The Schacht family run the farm and Brenda Schacht said she will be bringing a 24-by-24-foot enclosure for children to enter and interact with the animals.
“They go right inside, then there’s a pen with goats and they can come in and pet the goats,” Brenda Schacht said on Friday morning.
Brenda Schacht said there would be people available to answer any questions the children might have.
Some older residents of the farm will not be able to come.
Otis, who is popular with visitors to the farm, is now retired and does not travel.
The fun at the Dover Library doesn’t end on Monday evenings.
Did you know that an animal’s tail can serve as a rudder for swimming, aid agility during flight, or can even function as an extra hand?
On Friday, August 6 at 2 p.m., Live Native Wildlife Ambassadors and a naturalist from the Squam Lakes Natural Science Center will speak about New Hampshire’s native wildlife on the library lawn.
On Sunday August 8 at 3 pm there will be a free screening of the original 1973 animated version of “Charlotte’s Web” in honor of the read community.
The event will take place at the Strand Theater and the concession stand will be open to purchase refreshments, according to information provided by the library.
