Load up your spaceship and blast off to The Aldrich for Story Time for Young Explorers, alongside the Ridgefield Library! During our expedition, we will discover outdoor sculpture by Alice Aycock with a family-friendly reading of Life on Mars by Jon Agee, inspired by how science can fuel the imagination and vice versa. Then, trek over to our Studio for a guided art-making activity: creating your own cardboard satellites! Perfect for families with children in early elementary school, grades K-2.
