Summer Reader Challenge is 1,200 Books!

 We have been having a lot of fun so far here at the library.  So far we have made lab coats, mad scientist heads and hair.  We had an obstacle course thanks to our teen volunteers Kayley and Courtney!  We have experimented with mentos and alka seltzer, magnets, gloop, our parachute and other things.  We had a visit with Mr Fizztastic and his science/magic show and we rocked it out with the Sock Rockerz!  The kids chose 1,200 books to read in 5 weeks.  So far we are half way through and they have only read 402 books.  They better get going or the grownups get to throw water balloons at them!  If they read 1,200 books, they throw water balloons at the grownups!  Watch for a link soon to all of our photos.  

Great turnout for Summer Reading!

 We had a wonderful turnout for our first day!  Kids made their "Mad Scientists" and took photos for next week.  Older kids made a "Lab Coat" with t-shirts and fabric markers.  Next week we'll set up our challenge, do an experiment, and go through the obstacle course! Join us next time, or on Friday the 11th for a free magic show!  Click on the link for photos of our first day....
