August 10 – October 5, Arthur Miller Branch Library

We are thrilled that the Arthur Miller Branch was chosen from libraries across the US to host a display in conjunction with the new IMAX film Backyard Wilderness.

This interactive popup exhibit is designed to get families interested in exploring the natural world around them.  The exhibit allows children to go on a scavenger hunt to locate 15 different plant and animal species. They also learn about the basics of scientific exploration and observation.

In addition to the exhibit, we will also be hosting a bioblitz at the Miller Library on September 8 from 9 am  – 12 pm. Learn more about the bioblitz and register here.
