Bat Program

Bats: Myth & Reality: This PowerPoint program uses high resolution photography and research results to debunk the folklore, myths, and misconceptions that have plagued bats for centuries. Unfounded fears, often fueled by grossly over-stated disease risk and ignorance, are the major contributors to the dramatic declines in bat populations world-wide. This program discusses species diversity, environmental and economic benefits of bats, and disease risk. The program runs approximately 45 minutes and  is followed by a question and answer period.  Live Florida bats will be displayed.

 

Beginning September 10th, the library will revert back to its Fall/Winter Hours which are as follows:

Monday 8:30 am – 7:00 pm

Tuesday 8:30 am – 5:00 pm

Be on the lookout for some mini super heroes roaming the streets of Frostproof! Our story for the day was “Kid Sheriff and the terrible toads” by Bob Shea and then each of child made their very own super hero cape!

These girls are creating their emblems which will then be placed on their cape.
