 Summer Reading

Continues every Tuesday until August 12.

 On July 8, we had a great time with rockets. Coke and Mentos rockets and vinegar and baking soda rockets took off to the delight of the 27 kids in attendance. We also had some fun with balloons. Thanks, Bill Ward, for the lesson on rockets and chemical reactions.

Next week we will be learning about probability, but to keep it fun, we will be using food! Come play with your food and learn about numbers.

 

Preschool Story Time will be from 1:00 to 1:30.

Elementary Reading Program will be from 1:00 to 2:00.

Everyone can read for prizes!


Mobius Science Center

came to Reardan for the summer reading on June 26. We were at the Smith Gym for this special presentation. Alex, the scientist from the Center, showed us a lot of chemical reactions. Many of them involved fire. She even lit bubbles in her hand on fire. Don't worry, she knows how to do this safely! After the show, the 65 children built marshmallow and toothpick bridges and shot marshmallows from the catapults that they built.

A big thank you to the Inland Northwest Community Foundation for giving the Lincoln County Libraries the grant to have Mobius come to us. Also, thank you RECAP for the chips and water.
