Critter Tales: Night Sounds Coming to MLS Libraries


Sounds at night can be spooky or comforting—it all depends on how you hear them.

Kids’ ears are finely tuned to the noises of the dark, especially if they are the sounds of nocturnal animals.  As part of its Summer Reading Games, the Metropolitan Library System presents an imaginary camping trip on which every one will get a chance to hear “Critter Tales: Night Sounds.”  There will be 12 Critter Tales events, beginning on June 12 and continuing through the end of June.

“Kids,” said MLS Children’s Services Coordinator Lisa Wood, “and let’s admit it, adults too, are fascinated by animals, and there’s something extra intriguing about the ones that roam around after dark, the ones we might not get to see very often in the wild.  I think we have a fun program planned that everyone will enjoy.”

“Critter Tales: Night Sounds” schedule:
