Amazon River and Galapagos Island Trips

RSVP today; space is limited.

Please join us and our wayfaring friends as they share their South American adventures.

Cruising the Amazon River with Irene & Arthur Rodgers – May 18 @ 7PM

Where can you see pink dolphins, three-toed sloths and plum throated katingas,  eat manyuk and pirhana, drink pisco sours and Iquitena  while cruising on an old tugboat named Cielito Lindo?  On the Amazon river, of course.  Join us  on our adventure into the beautiful Peruvian rain forest and down the river.

They will also share their experience in the Galapagos, an archipelago of volcanic islands distributed on either side of the Equator in the Pacific Ocean. The islands are known for their vast number of endemic species which were studied by Charles Darwin. From there, we will follow their journey along the Amazon, the largest river in the world.


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 calling the Library at (215)968-7659 or emailing librarian@newtownlibrary.com.
