Sharks4Kids at the the Library!

Event Dates and Times

8/3/2017 - Starts: 6:30 PM
Southwest Harbor Public Library, 338 Main Street, Southwest Harbor, ME 04679
Swim into the Southwest Harbor Public Library Thursday evening, August 3, 6:30 to dive deep into the world of sharks!

Sharks are one of the most important animals we have on this planet. Join Jessica Woodend, a Sharks4Kids Ambassador, for an hour long adventure into the ocean to explore these magnificent animals. Learning more about their role in the ecosystem will help to demonstrate why we should protect these animals instead of fearing them. Explore sharks and their unique adaptations with a focus on the species found in the Gulf of Maine.

The goal of Sharks4Kids is to create the next generation of shark advocates through education, outreach, and adventure. No matter where we live, sharks matter and we are working to empower students and inspire them to be a voice for sharks and our oceans. For more information, call the Library at 244-7065.

This program is supported by a grant from the Ezra Jack Keats Foundation, named in honor of the groundbreaking children’s book author, who believed that public education is one of the greatest legacies of our country, one that benefits children from every walk of life.

For Keats, it was at public school that he received encouragement to pursue his vocation as an artist. And the public library was a haven that introduced him to the wonders of art history.

To offer a similar experience to new generations, the Ezra Jack Keats Foundation created Mini-Grants: awards of up to $500 given to public schools and public libraries for projects that foster creative expression, working together and interaction with a diverse community.
