Saturday, June 22, 10 a.m. 
The Magic of Letterpress
The concept of movable type was invented in China a thousand years ago, but the refined and efficient Gutenberg press of 1439 rocketed Europe into the Renaissance.
Where would we be without books? “Unplug” for the morning and come learn the art of setting type on our 1830s Acorn press. Print your own card to take home!
Saturday June 29, 10 a.m.
Mammal Day!
What do humans, whales, and bats have in common? Quite a lot, it turns out! We will talk about what makes a mammal a mammal, and the adaptations we can observe in a mammal’s fur, teeth, and feet to find out who they are, and what they’re good at! Skulls and pelts will be on display for you to examine up close.

Responsible journalism is hard work!
It is also expensive!
