  •  There’s plenty to do at the Hawley Public Library to celebrate Earthfest, April 21-25. Make a mask for the species parade.

        Lions, tigers, lizards and more! It’s your choice. Create your very own mask of your favorite animal to participate in the "Hawley Species Parade" scheduled for Saturday, April 26 on Park Place at Bingham Park.
        Visit the children’s room during library hours the week of April 21st to create a mask. The Species Parade on Saturday kicks off at 10 a.m. Costume and participation prizes will be awarded to random costumed participants and announced at noon at the PPL Wallenpaupack Environmental Learning Center during the Pike Wayne Earthday Festival. You must be present to collect your prize.
       Friday, April 25, from 2 to 5 p.m: Visit the library lawn and get a sneak peak of the Hawley Farmers’ Market seasonal offerings such as butter crunch and baked goods, and jams and jellies. Northern Light Natural Foods will showcase a variety of herbs and tea instruments, and share how to make tea with different blends to reduce allergy symptoms and stress. Local honey will also be available.
      Saturday, April 26: After you’ve walked in the Species Parade visit the library and meet two local authors whose works have been influenced by surrounding nature. At 11 a.m. children’s author/illustrator, Lindsay Barrett George, will read from one of her many animal and nature themed books and provide a craft. George is renowned for picture books such as Around the Pond, In the Garden: Who’s Been There? And Alfred Digs.
        At 1 p.m. author/poet and illustrator, Mort Malkin, will do a reading from his book The Upper Delaware in Verse and Image, recently published by the National Park Service. The poems can be read on the level of the beauty and wonder of nature, but also on a deeper level of the wisdom of Mother Nature vs the foolishness of mankind.
         Reduce, reuse and READ-cycle from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday and rummage through the Library's used books. Plastic bags will be available or bring your own. Take home a bag of used books for only one dollar.
         Don’t have a bag or want a sturdier bag to carry your newly purchased items? Downtown Hawley Partnership (DHP) tote bags will be available for sale both days. Proceeds from the sales will help support DHP events.
