Where: Morgan Library’s Archives Reading Room
Cost: Free

“Kids ‘n Kritters”: A history of animal 4-H projects will be on display in Room 202 of Morgan Library. If you’re unfamiliar with 4-H, it’s a national youth development program that does research and prepared kids for leadership positions and stuff. The main point here is that there’s livestock animals and there’s kids, and there are photos of them together from the early 20th century. It’s historical, the animals are cute and it’s right in the library if you want to take a look.
