How (Not) to Make Slime

Science is fun, and even if your experiment doesn't work out the way you want it to, part of that fun can be making a big mess and just enjoying yourself! 


Watch as Ms. Andrea tries to make glow-in-the-dark slime, and shows you that being a scientist takes patience and lots of do-overs.



Storytime To Go

While the library is closed to the public, we’ll be offering Storytime To Go - online weekly read alouds and activities for you to share at home with your kiddos. 


Each week on Tuesday, we’ll be posting a link to an online story and movement, math, and hands on activities. You’ll be able to enjoy a storytime experience in the comfort of your own home, and as your schedule allows.
