Story Time participants pose with Drippydrop as they look over the large map that gave them hands-on opportunities with water and seeing it travel through the rivers to the aquifers. Later, they painted water color pictures.
The Nueces River Authority visited Story Time at the Live Oak County Library in Three Rivers on Thursday, Aug. 23, presenting their Nueces River Basin Model demonstration. The demonstration, sponsored by the Live Oak Underground Water Conservation District, focused on educating audiences of all age groups about the water cycle, water conservation and our watershed. Using a 3 x 7 ft. floor map, children experienced hands-on opportunities with water and seeing it travel through the rivers to the aquifers.
There was also a special appearance by mascot Drippydrop who read a book discussing ways to save water, relaying that there are more people than ever before using water. Story Time finished with a watercolor craft to paint pictures showing how useful water is and how participants will try to conserve it.
Story Time Coordinator Misty Sindt thanked the Live Oak Underground Water Conservation District, Nueces River Authority, mascot Drippydrop (Victoria Herndon) and Dee Worley for sharing this valuable experience with Story Time at the library.
