PARIS — The Paris Public Library is offering activities for youths ages 9 to 13 on Fridays as part of its “Everyday is Earth Day” summer program. Named the “Green Thumbs,” each week the participants focus on a different aspect of the planet, with each program also featuring a nature-themed craft.

Friday, July 24, participants will learn about precipitation around the United States from Sue Lahti of the Maine Geographic Alliance. July 31, Barbara Murphy of the University of Maine Cooperative Extension will explore the world and life of plants.

Aug. 7, Susan Hayward, president of the Stanton Bird Club of Lewiston-Auburn, will present a program on Maine’s birds.
Aug. 14, the group will take a field trip to the Twitchell Observatory and discover astronomy with Rick Chase.

The programs are free and open to any interested youth in the community. Preregistration for the programs is requested to allow the library’s staff to have sufficient materials on hand for everyone to participate.
