Road Trip Week 5

Our road trip continues as we visit California, Nevada, Oregon, Idaho, Washington, Montana, and Wyoming.

This portion of our virtual road trip takes us through Hollywood. Before movies - especially animated movies - there was an optical illusion toy called a thaumatrope. This week, try making your own thaumatrope. Pick up a take-and-make craft kit at the library or follow the directions in the Craft blog post on the left using materials you have at home.

Inspired by Old Faithful at Yellowstone National Park, this week's STEM challenge is to make a soda geyser! Directions for this challenge can be found in the STEM Challenge blog post on the left. Be careful - this challenge can get messy!

This week's program is an author talk with Mac Smith. Mac will be joining us at the library on Wednesday, July 28th at 6pm to talk about his book Peyton Place Comes Home to Maine: The Making of the Iconic Film. We hope you'll join us!
