The library may not be the first thing that comes to mind when the kids get cabin fever, but based on these library events — which are only a fraction of the programming offered by your local lending institution — there’s plenty of fun, engaging and interactive ways to while away the blazing summer hours. Most libraries have limited space, so be sure to register beforehand to reserve a spot.

Rich Ihle Reptile Adventures

Zoo to You
It’s hard to muster up courage for the zoo when it’s 110 degrees in the shade, but fear not — the Phoenix Zoo is coming to Chandler’s Sunset Library with a free, hands-on educational presentation with live animals. Ticket prices for similar programs at the zoo can run as high as $25 a person, making this event — designed for kids 5 and older — a real bargain. It is expected to fill up quickly, and tickets are required. The free tickets become available at Sunset Library’s info desk Saturday, June 21. The library is open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday, but families are limited to six tickets per household, so if you need several tickets, plan on picking them up Saturday morning — there’s a good chance tickets will be “sold out” by the end of the day.
DETAILS >> 10:30 a.m. to 11:15 a.m. Thursday, June 26. Chandler Sunset Library, 4930 W. Ray Road. Free; pick up your tickets Saturday, June 21. (480) 782-2800 or Chandlerlibrary.org.

‘The Little Red Hen’

The participatory performance will have kids laughing and clapping while teaching them a moral about helping others.

The push to what used to be the edges of metro civilization continues in Arizona.
As an Arizona native, I have a love for the desert that just comes naturally. But there is something inside of me that loves greenery, water, colorful flowers and shade. I cannot always hop in the car and drive up north so, I am comforted by the fact that just 30 minutes east of Apache Junction lies the 100-acre Boyce Thompson Arboretum State Park, which boasts the best of the desert as well as many non-native plants.
