In case you haven't heard, the second Saturday of every month is now Family Lab from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. And we are very excited to follow up the first one with a monster bomb workshop with our pals from A Monster To Love.
Years ago I was working at a job I didn't like, and spending my time away from the job thinking about how much I didn't like it. Maybe you can relate. Then one Saturday morning I was browsing through my neighborhood library, when I saw a book about whirligigs. My grandfather was a master carpenter and when I was little he made a whirligig for the roof of his garage. It was a boy on a bike being chased by a dog, and when the wind blew, the boy's feet moved the pedals, which moved the wheels on the bike!
Fizz, Boom, Read! Since our Summer of Reading program this year is all about science, we decided to turn the library into a laboratory today! We became mad scientists here at Montbello, and cooked up some super-easy, super-fun creations that you can make in your own kitchen. We made glitter playdough and slimy gak to play with, with ingredients that you probably already have at home. The best part? Making these recipes with your children gives you the perfect opportunity to introduce basic science concepts in a fun, engaging way. Ready? Here we go:
Here at the Children's Library, storytime isn't just about books. We follow each of our Tales for Twos and Preschool Storytimes with a craft in our craft room. Crafting not only encourages creativity, but it also develops early literacy skills that will help children learn to read when they get older.
This will be a day long remembered. Make that a week! Join us September 30-October 6 for Star Wars Reads Week at Denver Public Library!
Last fall, libraries and bookstores all over the country came together for a celebration of reading and all things Star Wars. The Park Hill Branch Library hosted a standing-room only event featuring all sorts of fun games and activities for Star Wars fans young and old.
No offense to your grandmother, but leave the embroidery needle and handkerchiefs at home. We're taking crafts into the 21st century with stylish infinity scarves and modern necklaces.
We don't have to tell you how popular infinity scarves are these days. Have fun making your own with Holly Willis! Great for beginners! Materials provided, but if you have a favorite material you'd like to use, please bring it. Please register: 720-865-0975 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Saturday, August 31 at 2 p.m. at the Bear Valley Branch
