Sharks at the Library…It’s Shark Week!

Shark Week at PCPL
Shark Week at PCPL

July 10-15

Visit the library throughout the week of July 10 for shark-themed programs, photos ops, book and movie displays, and giveaways. There’s no escaping them, even our weekly storytimes will focus on sharks!

Tuesday, July 11 at 3:00pm – Shark Cart with Newport Aquarium
Live sharks at the library! This program demystifies common misconceptions about sharks and gets you up-close and personal with these amazing creatures! In addition to the live sharks, you’ll see animal artifacts like shark jaws, a can of shark fin soup, shark eggs, and more. No registration required.

Tuesday, July 11 at 6:30pm – Pajama Storytime
Sharks will be popping up as we read stories, sing songs, and play with the parachute at this fun storytime for kids ages 6 and under and their families. Don’t forget to wear your pajamas! No registration is required.

Wednesday, July 12 from 3:15-4:30 – IMake Sharkstravaganza
Drop in and create, invent, and explore with a different hands-on project every Wednesday. Investigate how sharks stay afloat and construct life-size outlines of different types of sharks as we explore the topics of measurement, buoyancy, and geometry. No registration required.

All Week Long
Look for our resident sharks – Sharky McSharkface and Sir Bitesalot – as they pop up around the library. Find a shark and get a prize!
