Posted: Friday, June 21, 2019

The Huntington City-Township Public Library will host the Roz Puppets as they present their “The Boy Who Cried Martian” puppet show Monday, June 24 at 10 a.m.

When a young shepherd is given a chance to watch the village sheep after several false wolf alarms, he is eager to prove himself. Questions soon arise as the wooly creatures begin to disappear. Can the events be connected to a mysterious visitor’s arrival? Will the village ever trust the shepherd again? Find out as the Roz Puppets perform this hilarious sequel to the classic Aesop Fable for all ages.

The Indiana Room at the Huntington City-Township Public Library will again host their Summer Walking Tour. Starting at 5:15 p.m. on Saturday, June 29, the walk will start at the entrance to the Huntington Library and travel through the nearby streets of downtown Huntington. Huntington Alert will partner with the Indiana Room to host this event, and will share the local history, stories and memories the various homes and buildings hold. All ages are invited to this walk, but the discussion topics will be geared towards adults.

Celebrate the 50th anniversary of the first Apollo mission to land on the Moon with the Air Zoo at 1 p.m. on Saturday, June 29 at the Huntington library. The Air Zoo will lead in a variety of educational activities and lessons that all ages can learn from in their Fly Me to the Moon interactive workshop. Investigate how gravity keeps the Moon in orbit around the Earth and what it takes to escape Earth’s gravity to get to the Moon. Experience the creation of Moon craters and the challenges involved in landing safely on the varied surface of the Moon, and more!

Over its 40-year history, the Air Zoo grew from a nine-plane hangar display to a stunning, world-class aerospace and science education center with over 100 rare aircraft and spacecraft, interactive exhibits, and cutting-edge educational programs for people of all ages. The Air Zoo is located in Kalamazoo, Michigan.

The Huntington Library is located at 255 W. Park Drive.
