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.

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!
No clowning around…Ronald McDonald utilized his clowning skills such as balancing, juggling, magic, puppetry and more to cover important topics facing today’s youth — topics such as anti-bullying, leadership, friendship, and the characteristics it takes to be a Super Hero. Our audience enjoyed a high-octane, highly-interactive show!
Great turnout for our first day of Super Hero Training Camp. Our story was Daisy the firecow by Viki Woodworth. Each child that attended received their super hero name and created a medal that signified their super hero. We also played a game of laser tag through the stacks. Fun was had by all!
Every Wednesday at 10:00 am beginning on July 8th we will have our Super Hero Training Camp – where we will listen to stories, make awesome crafts, play games and have fun! Join us to find out what your super hero name is and make a super hero medal for yourself. Each week we will add to your ensemble by making capes, masks, etc. For more information, call the Library at 863 635-7857.

Mike Ferguson, reporter for the News Chief summed up the program in his article published on July 3rd.
