Coming to our elementary schools this Fall 2019!

    The Moscow Elementary Libraries are proud to welcome Idaho raptor biologist Jane Veltcamp and her nationally acclaimed award-winning children's book Beauty and the Beak that tells the true story of Beauty, the Bald Eagle who received a 3D-printed, prosthetic beak. Jane Veltkamp is the director of Birds of Prey Northwest in St. Maries, Idaho, and led the team that engineered the 3D-printed beak. Jane will be visiting Moscow on November 21/22. Her presentations include five different species of raptors and Jane also shares her nonfiction picture book Beauty and the Beak: How Science, Technology, and a 3D-Printed Beak Rescued a Bald Eagle.
