NORWAY — Children ages 9 to 12 are invited to study dragon lore from around the world in Dragonology, a program at Norway Memorial Library. Dragonology will meet from 3:15 to 4:45 p.m. Wednesdays, Oct. 14, 21, and 28.

The featured activity will be reading and discussing “Dragon’s Egg” by Maine author Sarah L. Thomson, which may be borrowed at the library. “Dragon’s Egg” was published in 2007 and received a Lupine Award from the Maine Library Association.

Twelve-year-old Mella is a gifted dragon keeper, caring for small dragons on her family’s farm. Like most people in her village, she doesn’t really believe stories of wild, fire-breathing dragons. One day, all that changes when she discovers a dragon’s egg and encounters a real wild and terrifying dragon. When the dragon is mortally wounded, Mella promises to take its egg safely to the hatching grounds. Accompanied by Roger, a dragon slayer’s squire, Mella takes off on an exciting adventure.

In addition to discussing the book, children will learn about different species of dragons, make dragon crafts and follow their own quest to the hatching grounds in a dragon egg hunt.

Space in the program is limited and must be reserved by visiting the Children’s Room at the library, 258 Main St. or calling 743-5308.
