Seeking Solutions to Big Problems:
A Fact-Based Discussion Group
Wednesday, March 8 at 7 p.m.

Rhode Island faces big problems, and putting together the facts about those challenges is the first step in finding solutions.

Print out your facts or bring them on a smartphone, and together we can start understanding our community’s predicaments and thinking about how we can tackle them.

On March 8, we’ll ask: What are the dangers of climate change, and how can it be stopped?

Make a Shamrock Shake
Wednesday, March 8 at 3:30 p.m.

Shamrocks are beautiful, but you probably don’t want to make a dessert out of them.

On the other hand, that shouldn’t stop you from mixing ice cream, milk, mint extract, and green food coloring together and calling it a shamrock shake.

Join teen librarian Jennifer Beiermann on March 8 to prepare this mean, green, and supreme treat. Yum!
