Grossology: Let's Eat Bugs!

Grossology: Let's Eat Bugs! In-Person

It's snack time at the library. What's on the menu, you ask? Nothing out of the ordinary - just some cheesy baked mealworms, cricket powder brownies, and ant candy. Bon appétit!

Learn about edible insects and the cultural, environmental, and economic reasons people all over the world enjoy bug-based foods. We'll also share gross bug trivia, play games, and munch on some six-legged refreshments.

This program is best for curious kids ages 7-12. Registration is required and will open two weeks ahead of the event!

*Important dietary note: People with shellfish allergies should not consume insects. The bugs we will be eating (crickets, mealworms, and ants) are not kosher and may not be considered halal. Please make decisions for your family accordingly.
