It's a Bird! It's a Plane! No it's...MY LIBRARIAN!?

Have you ever wanted to skydive? This Thursday, Northwest Branch Librarian Deborah Sica and circulation assistant Connie Villa will do just that! Now you might be asking yourself “who would want to jump out of a perfectly good plane?” Well, if you’ve ever seen Deborah arrive for work on her motorcycle then you already know she’s not exactly your grandmother’s librarian. As for Connie, she has worked previously as an airline attendant for 12 years, so this probably isn’t her first inclination to want to jump. Both women are incredibly fearless, and for this we applaud them (and wish them lots of luck). Check back soon for actual photos.

Adult Crafts

Craft projects and activities are not just for the young.  They are for the young at heart also.  On July 26, Baldwin Boettcher Library will have a lighthouse craft using clay pots and acrylic paints.  In August, watch our calendar for the date, the library will be offering a T-shirt decorating craft.

So bring your creative talents and come to the library for our adult craft times.  Remember to sign up for these events on the main library site www.hcpl.net using our events page and choosing the time and date for that craft.  You only need to put in your first and last name and a phone number so we may be able to call and remind you to attend the craft.

S.I.D. Camp is a success.

Baldwin Boettcher had a successful showing at our S.I.D. Camp.  We used our Science to Investigate, Explore and Discover.  Twenty children who were 4 and 5 years old came to the library to help Ms Nancy and Ms Bonnie with our science camp.  We used our sense of smell to help us discover different smells.  Next the wind came to the library so we could determine what the wind means to me.  Finally on the last day of camp we explored our investigation tool, the magnifying glass.  With our magnifying glass we investigated bugs, ears and our hands.  The children discovered that the magnifying glass makes things bigger.
