We here at the Kenosha News believe every day is Earth Day. But today is the OFFICIAL Earth Day 2019. To celebrate, do something nice for our planet — it’s the only one we have until we start colonizing Mars; therefore, we should do everything we can to sustain it. Pick up trash off the sidewalk, recycle your plastic water bottles and turn off the lights when you leave a room. You can find out more at www.earthday.org.
Staying home this week for Spring Break? Head to the Northside Library, 1500 27th Ave., which is showing the animated film “Meet the Robinsons” from 2 to 4 p.m. Families are also invited to enjoy “a variety of science activities, games and crafts.” Admission is free.
The Fantasy/Sci Fi Book Club — for people who “love alternate realities, cosmic realms, magic and imagination” — meets from 6 to 7:30 tonight in the Southwest Library, 7979 38th Ave. Admission is free. There is no registration required and no specific books to read.
Start your Spring Break week by taking a short jaunt north to Milwaukee, which boasts museums and other attractions, including:
The Milwaukee Public Museum, home to a butterfly garden, the Streets of Old Milwaukee and an IMAX theater. www.mpm.edu.
The Milwaukee Art Museum, which has a beautiful Santiago Calatrava-designed pavilion that features a 90-foot high glass-walled reception hall. The museum also offers an Art Generation Studio, with hands-on activities for children. www.mam.org.
Discovery World Museum, perched on the lakefront in downtown Milwaukee, offers interactive “experiences.” www.discoveryworld.org.
Younger children should find plenty to keep them entertained at Milwaukee’s Betty Brinn Children’s Museum. www.bbcmkids.org.
After you’ve had your fill of museums, stop by the Milwaukee Public Market for a bite to eat. www.milwaukeepublicmarket.org.
