The Rowayton Library will be participating in Take Your Child To The Library Day on Saturday, February 2, along with 120 libraries in 12 states… with special activities for families. This Saturday, the Rowayton Library will be open ALL DAY from 10am – 5pm with events planned throughout the day. Kids (and adults) – come take a walk on the “wild side” with a journey into Africa, your passport is your library card (or if you don’t have one, you can get one).
At 11am, our journey through Sub Saharan Africa begins (a visual tour for kids): the beauty of this region is that it has EVERYTHING: the wild jungles of the Congo to the oldest desert in the world in Namibia to the teeming wildlife of Botswana and the majesty of one of the 7 great natural wonders of the world, Victoria Falls. Learn about the different animals and their environments in each. Presenter: Darren Humphreys is Founder & CEO of Travel Sommelier, a specialist travel company that focuses on travel to Africa. He grew up in South Africa and has had the privilege of traveling extensively throughout Sub-Sharan Africa to some of the most iconic destinations in the world. He is delighted to be able to share that passion and knowledge with our next generation of explorers.
