This Friday August 1 at 6:30pm, we are having a Nature Scavenger Hunt!  You will be given a list of things that you must find outside!  It won’t be find a leaf but more like “find something fuzzy” or “find something that makes noise”.  Lots of fun to be had!

Field Paleontologists, Mike & Roberta Straka, will explore the great extinction that wiped out all the dinosaurs & other animals on Wednesday August 6 at 6:30pm.  The show will feature Molly the Mosasaur as well as fun-filled music, show & tell, an exciting experiment and a touch of magic in this great show, “Exploding Geoscience”!

On Friday August 8 at 6:30pm, join us for Einstein’s Megatronic Cosmic Café!  Choose from lots of different items on the menu!  You will be served four “courses”.  See if you can identify what the items really are!  For example: what is a “Newton’s Apple”?  Pick it as part of one of your courses and you could find out!

On Wednesday August 13 at 2:30pm, join 9WSYR Meteorologist, Jim Teske, as he shares with us his exciting job!  Learn how he tracks the weather, storms and more!  Also watch footage of a tornado!

“Don’t let the gravity of the situation get you down, catch the fun” says Dave & Kyle Fultz, Gravitational Bull Jugglers that are appearing at the library on Friday August 15 at 6:30pm.  Come see the fun and amazing antics of these two as summer reading comes to an end!

Get your summer reading records in so your minutes are recorded by Friday August 15 at 8pm.  Remember to read at least ten hours and if collectively all children read 1000 or more hours, they can silly string the Library Manager at graduation!

Summer Reading graduation will be on Wednesday August 20 at 6:30pm.  All the children who completed the ten hour reading requirement are invited to this ceremony.  Prizes, t-shirts, certificates & ice cream sundaes!

Do you need a notary?  The library now offers this service free!  We can do Saturdays and evenings by appointment too!  Call the library for more information!

We are open Monday, Wednesday and Friday 12pm to 8pm, Tuesday and Thursday 10am to 8pm.
