Become master builders at our library through summer reading! On Tuesday, June 27, come for the Riveting Aerodynamics program. Be like Rosie Revere, who sees treasure where others see trash as she invents new things. Read her story, then build your own flying machine! On Tuesday, July 11, come for Rube Goldberg Machines program. Kids, would you ever use a bowling ball to make spaghetti? Or a bicycle to fill your bathtub? It may sound silly, but sometimes using everyday items in a sequence can create a spectacular outcome!
