How long does trash last? Come to the library for a fun recycling activity with Barbara Roy! Kids will learn what kinds of trash last and for how long a time, and how to protect sea creatures by keeping that trash out of the ocean. Barbara Roy is a 20-year Marblehead resident who recently crossed the Atlantic on a scientific mission to study micro-plastics. Children are invited to this interactive program, chosen as part of our Green Paws activity series.
Green Paws is an ongoing program developed from the collaboration between the Abbot Public Library and Sustainability Marblehead. Open to all ages, children can participate in Green Paws by reading books on our rotating thematic displays and exploring "green" activities both at the Library and at home. Complete all the Green Paw activities and receive a Sustainable Marblehead Green Paws Certificate!
