Alamosa Public Library Celebrates National Library Week and International Dark Sky Week

ALAMOSA — Alamosa Public Library invites the whole community for an “EggSighting” Scavenger Hunt in celebration of National Library Week.  Visit the library during open hours the week of April 5-9 and peep around for one of four large eggs nesting inside the library. 

Once found, reach inside and peck out a title.  Then find the item on the shell-f and give it to the librari-hen at the front desk for a small prize and a raffle ticket.  Hen-ter the raffle for a chance to win one or both Grade A prizes on display!  Dozen’t that sound egg-citing? 

International Dark Sky Week 2021 coincides with National Library Week so children are encouraged to “Discover the Night” and pick up a Dark Sky Project Pack at Alamosa Public Library anytime between 10:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. Monday (4/5) through Friday (4/9). 

It will contain stickers, craft ideas, supplies, information on the importance of dark skies and an official Junior Ranger Night Explorer Activity Guide from Great Sand Dunes National Park and Preserve.  In 2019, Great Sand Dunes was certified as an International Dark Sky Park by the International Dark-Sky Association (IDA).  Prospective Junior Rangers are invited to return their activity guide to Great Sand Dunes to officially take the oath of the Junior Ranger - Night Explorer
