Fun at the Library!

Thursday, April 13, 2017, the Library and staff hosted the elementary students┬áduring the high school’s Mock Crash Scene. The staff came up with fun projects to keep them entertained. Thankfully, the weather cooperated and we were able to do everything we wanted to. There was a scavenger hunt inside the library. Students were given a clue list. Once they were done finding everything on their list, they had to have the librarian sign off.

Outside, the younger students got to find “treasure” in frozen treasure chests that they got to watch fizz and foam up when they melted. After they melted, they were able to make bracelets with the beads that they found. The older students got to shoot bottle rockets! Of course, not the scary kind that firework companies come up with. They learned how to do a safe, scientific version made with baking soda and vinegar and the chemical reaction it makes. (Pictures and video to come) In the firehouse, the students got to make a marbled paper craft.

We would like to thank; the volunteers that helped to make this possible, the library staff who helped coordinate it all, the Firehouse and Parks and Rec for use of the facilities, and of course, the students and staff at the Norwood School for letting us help with such a fun day!
