Gem Mining at Hickory Public Library

The Schiele Museum of Natural History is coming to Patrick Beaver Memorial Library. The library’s theme for summer 2018 is Libraries Rock! This summer we are exploring all kinds of music at the library but we are also playing with and learning about rocks.  On Saturday, June 16th educators from the Schiele Museum will set up a water sluice on the side lawn of the library. Kids in grades K-8 will learn and use identification and sorting techniques to find, examine, and classify minerals. Treasure-seekers will use the running water sluice to find gemstones that they may keep.  Programs will be held at 10:00 am and again at 2:00 pm. Space is limited in this hands-on activity so registration is required.  Please call the children’s desk at 828-304-0500 or visit the library website and register through the library events calendar.
