Lights Up

As part of the "Juggling for Mary" exhibit, performers will entertain with juggling, hula hoops, fans and more for a one-of-a-kind cirque experience in the Rose Gallery 2–4 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 3. From 1:30 to 2 p.m. that same day, teacher education students will read aloud stories relating to finding and sharing unique gifts and talents.

Watermelon Sugar

During finals week, stop by the crafternoon table across from leisure reading for coloring pages, stickers and — while supplies last — watermelon and cherry Jolly Ranchers. Try on a feather boa and pair of sunglasses here, too!
