Free Books and A Banana Piano Too!

Thanks to everyone who helped out by volunteering, donating and purchasing items at this year's annual library booksale. This fundraiser helps us to do a little bit extra for our community as well as find good homes for gently read book! THIS WEEK ONLY: All leftover books, vhs movies and  magazines in the library basement clubroom are free to a good home! Take one or take a boxful, there's still plenty of good reading available. The clubroom will be open from 10am -5pm daily.

NOW PLAYING @ Your Library: The MakeyMaKey Banana piano, pictured below! Stop by for a lesson and learn about this new tool that's just the beginning of our planned MakerSpace project in 2015.

Makerspaces brings  a variety of unique tools, technology, instruction and creative, curious people- older kids and adults-- together at the library to innovate and build fun, cool projects and inventions based on science, art, engineering, crafts, math, recycling, fiber art and common sense problem solving. If you can play a banana, can you tuna fish? Find out @ your Boscobel Library.

Summer Library Reading Programs: Warp Speed Ahead!  
In the last two weeks the library's "Fizz Boom Read" Summer Library Program first featured a visit from "Dr. Einstein", Steve Stahlman and his tremendous traveling lab. Kids and parents learned how much fun- and how loud!-- science experiments can be. Then last Wednesday, we were invaded by Orges as Shrek and Fiona took center stage and everyone got to pin the tail (tale?) on a very annoying Donkey! 
This week Tom Kastle will be bringing his amazing musical instrument show to tell us all about the science of sounds and song. Can you toot a tuba? Find out and join us to get in tune, @ Your Library!
