“Shark Week” coming to Amherstburg library

 

By Jolene Perron

The large shark in the downstairs of the Amherstburg library is part of their “Shark Week,” which is the final part of their Summer of Discover program.

Christine Reichert, community supervisor at the Amherstburg library branch, explained the Amherstburg library’s “Shark Week” actually coincides with the Discovery Channel’s tribute to sharks as well.

“We thought it would be something fun to do this summer,” said Reichert. “Most kids are very excited about sharks. We are going to have a drop in craft every day of the week and Saturday we are having the fin-ally to say so long to the sharks for another year. Come in and have some shark-ey fun.
