Baxter County Library kicks off Diamond Days this weekend, celebrating the arrival of the Diamond Exhibit from the Museum of Discovery with a full day of activities for everyone. The exhibit experience includes rock and mineral samples, multimedia experiences, computer interactives, and large full-image graphic panels.
Opening day activities include rock painting, a photo booth, diamond prints, and a diamond dig. At 10:30am, Assistant State Geologist, Angela Cranston, will present on local geology. Plus, bring your favorite rock to have it identified! Celebrate Grandparents’ Day Saturday, September 10, 10 am – 2 pm, and bring your grand (child or parent) to explore and learn together!
After exploring the Diamonds Exhibit, join us in celebrating the Buffalo National River’s 50th Anniversary with an indoor concert featuring Still on the Hill at 1pm. Still on the Hill is a national and international touring group from Arkansas that has been described as “Ambassadors of the Ozarks” for their work to preserve the rich culture that is the Ozarks.
Kelly & Donna of Still on the Hill are award-winning ‘story telling-song writers.’ Unlike most singer-songwriters, this dynamic duo embellishes their songs with a host of unique instruments from the hills they call home. Many of these were hand-made by old-timers and have amazing stories that go with them.
