Join us Wednesday July 25 at 1:00PM at the Newfields Town Hall for the Children’s Museum program : Mind-Blowing Matter Rocks!
Join us for an exploration of matter from tiny molecules to exploding volcanoes. Learn how rocks can change their state of matter, and watch other items change right before your eyes! Make an incredible shrink paper craft (that looks like real glass!) to take home. A museum educator will lead children in a hands-on, exciting, and informative presentation, with a focus on geology and other subjects that ROCK!
Designed for ages 5-11, children outside this range are welcome to attend.
Someone has been removing the letters from the library sign in front of the building. As a result, some have gone missing, and others have been broken. We have alerted the Newfields police department to take note….that no one (other than library staff) should be touching that sign. If you notice someone removing letters from the sign, please alert the Newfields police department immediately. Thank you for your help!
This activity is for ages 6-12. Younger siblings are welcome to attend, but parents will be expected to chaperone them. Goldfish crackers and water will be provided.
Ten girls in grades 6 through 9 recently completed an 8-hour 4H certified Babysitting Course at the library taught by Pam. Topics covered included child development, nutrition, first aid, child and infant CPR, when and how to call for help, how best to entertain children and most importantly, how to be responsible and keep the children safe at all times.
They are ready and enthusiastic to start babysitting!
A list of contact information for them will be available at the library desk.
