Penn Chair Travel Series: Antarctic Spring

Newtown Library Company’s Penn Chair Travel Series  presents: Dr. Rami Cobb and the Antarctic Spring

Where: Newtown Library Company
When: March 23, 2017 @ 7PM
Who: Dr. Rami Cobb

Antarctica, the seventh continent, is a land of extremes – the coldest, highest, windiest and driest land, surrounded by the stormiest ocean.

The extreme climate has limited the impact humans have had in the 200 years since the first recorded landing. Today, whales and seals have come back from the brink of extinction, and penguin colonies stun the eyes, ears and nose. After months of darkness, the return of light in springtime reveals the majestic mountains, stunning icebergs and glaciers, and the burgeoning wildlife on its shores.

Refreshments served before and after the program.

A suggested $5 donation to the Newtown Library Company is requested to offset the cost of refreshments provided after each presentation. Please reserve your seat by signing up at the front desk or calling the Library at (215)968-7659 or emailing
