- May 26 & 27 - All libraries CLOSED for Memorial Day
Mad Science is back by popular demand! Last time we learned about Fire and Ice; this time it's Up, Up & Away!
Up, Up & Away takes the principles of air pressure to a new high! Some of the things the children can observe include: the creation of a hot air balloon, giant smoke rings generated by a vortex generator and a hovercraft in action. WOW! This fun, exciting and educational program will be at the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Library on Saturday, January 28 at 3:00PM. Don't miss it!
The library has many books for children who are interested in all kinds of flying machines, click here to see the many books you can borrow. Plus if you're interested in the first hot-air balloon flight which happened in 1783 check out this fun book: Hot Air, The (Mostly) True Story of the First Hot-Air Balloon Ride by Marjorie Price as told from the point of view of the duck, sheep and rooster who were the first passengers!
