If you were not aware, May is Asian-Pacific Heritage Month.  Here at Northwest, we will have several events to spotlight the various peoples and cultures of Asia and the Pacific.  On May 18th, we will have an Origami Workshop at 1:00 pm as well as a Henna Workshop at 2:00 pm.  On May 25th, there will be a Shadow Puppet Show and Craft in the meeting room at 1:00 pm.  Be sure to check our online calendar to stay up to date with all our special events throughout the month.
 

Turtle Transition

Aquatic TurtleOur Turtles are transitioning to a new home the Friday, May 10th. We love Big Mike and Raphael but they have grown too much to keep in the small tank we have here at Northwest.  Our space for tanks is limited at the library so they will be going home with me at the end of this week.

Big Mike is already in his new home and Raphael will be joining him on Friday. I know we'll all miss them at the library but they are more comfortable in a larger environment with more space to swim and move freely. 

Be sure to stop in and say goodbye to Raphael before he joins Big Mike in their new home!
