Work Smarter Not Harder Show

Julian FranklinSaturday, July 22nd at 2:00 pm join us for the Work Smarter not Harder Show presented by Julian Franklin. This hands-on workshop allows learners to handle wheels, pulleys, levers, wedges, incline planes and screws in a way that makes abstract concepts "concrete" (yes, the pun was intended!).

Julian comes in dressed as a construction worker, but the children from the audience are the ones who do the work.

Tactile learners will come to life as they help figure out how to lift a 50 pound bucket of rocks with a 5 pound weight, and why a wedge is such a handy tool. Using levers your youngest students will be able to easily accomplish feats that NO human being can accomplish bare handed. This is a presentation that will be remembered and talked about for a VERY long time.

Preschool and Toddler Storytimes

We hope everyone has a wonderful weekend with friends and family while some of enjoy watching the Super Bowl.  This is just a reminder starting next week all kids will have to have a ticket before attending Preschool Storytime on Tuesday at 10:30 am or Toddler Storytime on Wednesday at 10:30 am.  The tickets will be on a table in the Children's Area starting when we open to pick up.  This is a measure put in place to insure everyone's safety in case of an emergency.  

Christmas Music Origins

Ever wonder about the stories behind all those Christmas carols playing on the radio?  These three books will tell you how songs like "Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer" and "O Holy Night" came about. 
 
You may learn something about the songs you've been hearing, although it's no guarantee the music will stop spinning in your head.
