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.

Explore Early Science Books in the Children’s Department

It’s never too early to talk about science with your youngest children. Early concepts about how and why the world works are featured in many books for toddlers, preschoolers and early elementary school-aged children. Your Tomball Library has pulled many of these books and put them on display in an Early Science Collection in the Children’s Department. Visit the library and our catalog  to see some of the great books we provide, or ask for more information at the Children’s Reference Desk. The Library also offers the monthly program What’s the Big Idea? to explore early science and math concepts with parents and their children, ages 2-7. Call 832-559-4235 for more information.
