Can’t decide what books to take to the beach? How about a good science book?
This summer, experiment in the wonders of reading and science like never before. Elmhurst Public Library’s science summer reading program theme brings experimental wonders, scientific adventures, and elemental stories right to Elmhurst.
Kick-off day is Saturday, June 7, with a variety of events for children, as well as a starting point for teens and adults to start logging their reading progress for prizes and raffle drawings.
Also on June 7, the library will host Mike Vondruska, a professional juggler and unicyclist, who will perform tricks in the Kids’ Library from 10 a.m.-12 p.m., and 1-3 p.m. Also that day, children can get their faces painted. Puppets on the Wilder Side—a favorite of all, young and old—will perform at 10:30 a.m., 11:30 a.m., 1:30 p.m., and 2:30 p.m.
New this year is a program specially tailored for babies for newborns to 11 months old. This program serves to enhance pre-reading skills through activities for caretakers to do with babies.
For the rest of the summer, EPL will be a laboratory of hands-on demos, safari science, and much more. Look for the 2014 Summer Reading Edition of Fine Print on the library website, or in your mailbox to see detailed descriptions of all the summer fun.
