Mammals Program Photos

The Mammals around the World program on March 26th delighted a few children who came to learn some interesting facts about the Fallow Deer, Virginia Opossum, Red Kangaroo, Alpaca, and the Tanuki. It never ceases to amaze me how much knowledge these children possess. A museum search followed the discussion and concluded with a presentation of Peter, the Short-tailed Opossum from Brazil who showed his enthusiasm by pooping on my gloved hand! If you missed this after school discovery, join us on April 9 for a slideshow on Prehistoric Life including real fossils.

Winter Storm

Once again, Granville Schools are closed, therefore the Pember Library and Museum is closed too. We apologize for any inconvenience. The town and village have a lot of streets to clear along with our parking area. We expect to be open for normal hours tomorrow.

Up a Tree!

Sorry, the museum will be closed today due to the winter weather.

True Dogs & Foxes program scheduled for today’s After School Discovery at the Pember Museum will be rescheduled for next week, March 19th at 4:00pm. See you then!


Dog Gone!

Let’s not forget the After School Discovery Program featuring True Dogs & Foxes on Wednesday, March 12 from 4:00 to 5:00pm at the Pember Library and Museum. ¬†When we think of the canines, we generally think of wolf, coyote, red fox and grey fox, but there are many more species. Come and enjoy a slide presentation, museum search and hands-on animal artifacts. Each participant will take home a wolf mask to color. This free program is open to children of all ages and will be held in the Museum.
