Anderson-Lee Library presents fossil program Thursday

SILVER CREEK – On Thursday at 11 a.m., the Anderson-Lee Library will host a presentation by the Penn Dixie Paleontological and Outdoor Education Center.

In keeping with this year’s summer reading theme, “Dig Into Reading,” the presentation will focus on “digging into the past” through the study of fossils.

The demonstration will include hands-on activities for the children to enjoy.

This summer’s performances and presentations for children have been made possible through a generous grant from the Kiwanis of Silver Creek, which provided funding for children’s programming and materials and also allowed the library to purchase an assortment of excellent new children’s books on display in the children’s area.

Additional funding for children’s materials was provided by the Friends of the Anderson-Lee Library and the Silver Creek Amvet Post 6472.

The library also received gifts for the summer program from Green Frog Convenience Store, Valvo’s Candy, PTESS, Inc., Community Bank, Rose Brook Golf Course, The D. Wright Charitable Fund, Ortolano, Inc., Shevlin’s Auto, Silver Creek Optical, Just Pets and individual community members.

The library has many more activities and presentations planned for the remainder of the summer including performances by the OmniPresent Puppet Theater and Mike Randall and programs presented by library staff.

The library’s full summer reading program schedule is available on its Facebook page and on its website (
