Having Fun at the Lake and Headlands Branches

We have a lot of fun over at our Main Branch on Mentor Avenue with our dragon training and Mad Science Mondays, but you’ll miss a whole lot if you never venture to our Headlands and Mentor-on-the-Lake Branches.

Just last week, we dyed T-shirts with Kool-Aid over at Lake Branch, and kids broke out the chalk and practiced their sketch art at Headlands.

We’ve also been having Lakeside Labs over at our Headlands Branch where we’ve learned about UV rays and built small hovercrafts.

It's about to get colorful at our Tye-Dye program.

The fun continues this week. Travelin’ Man Band is playing a free concert this Wednesday evening at our Headlands Branch. (Bring a lawn chair or a blanket, if you like.)

And Know Poe—our month-long celebration of Edgar Allan Poe—continues at the Lake Branch tonight with Mystery on the Lake. Kids can use their sleuthing skills to solve a whodunnit. (After all, Poe did invent the detective genre, as well as horror.)

We’re even making lava lamps on June 30 at our Headlands Branch. (You can use them while wearing your new tye-dye shirt.)
