Lifting off with Super Science Saturdays

We took to the skies during the most recent Super Science Saturday at our Headlands Branch.

First, kids made hoop gliders that floated through the air. Then, they made rockets that exploded that were powered by a chemical reaction that produces carbon dioxide.

You can even make your own rocket by following these instructions:

We have another Super Science Saturday coming this summer at our Headlands Branch.

On Aug. 1, we’ll be making slime and “elephant toothpaste.” Kids (entering kindergarten through fifth grade) are free to join in the fun.

And while you’re at the library, you can sign up for summer reading. For every hour a child reads or is read to, they receive a raffle ticket that can help them win one of dozens of cool prizes—from telescopes and microscopes to Lego sets and Superhero Barbie. The more someone reads, the better chance they have of winning.

If a child reads 20 hours by Aug. 1, they will be entered into a special raffle to win one of two $50 gift certificates from Toys ‘R Us.

Mentor Library also has a summer reading program (and prizes) for teens and adults, as well. For more information about summer reading, call 440-255-8811 or visit Mentor Library’s website.
