Kids Invited to Story Time at Library for Ferndale 'Green Week'
The family-friendly event will feature stories focused on the environment and nature. Free ice cream will be provided by Treat Dreams in Ferndale.
Ferndale's fourth annual Green Week continues today with "Youth Day."
Head to the Ferndale Public Library at 6 p.m. today for a family story time, where free ice cream from Treat Dreams will be provided.
The event is part of the weeklong "earth celebration" organized by the Ferndale Environmental Sustainability Commission along with support from the Ferndale Downtown Development Authority, the local business community and other area organizations.
Douglas Christie, chair of the Ferndale Environmental Sustainability Commission, said the storytime will be focused on sustainability, the environment and nature. He said the kids often get excited ways they can help "save the planet."
"It's just great to be in that room with young kids that are just like waiting for every word to roll off of the speak's voice," Christie said.
Or, "maybe they're just thinking about the ice cream," he laughed. "That's always a big hit."
