Be a Part of Holiday History

The world has shown itself to be a pretty scary place recently. StoryCorps hopes to bring the global community a little closer together this Thanksgiving by collecting tens of thousands of stories, doubling their archives in one holiday weekend. By sharing and listening to the lives of our family and friends, we can learn about our collective history and get insight into our immediate community's experiences.  

Consider working together this Thanksgiving to add a new voice to the archive--the StoryCorps app makes recording and posting simple. Or listen to one of the 65,000 stories already available and see the world just a little bit differently.

Oh, the Horror! Oh, the Fun!

There were witches a-plenty, assorted animals and superheroes galore at our Halloween celebrations this year.

The younger children trick-or-treated through the library and the older set mummified their parents. Everyone heard stories appropriate to the holiday.

We can hardly wait until next year!

Building Suspense

What a large and enthusiastic crowd of budding engineers we had building bridges in our theater on September 24th!

Kathryn, Karen and Louise from "Arch for Kids" explained the principles behind bridge architecture. Then our kids and their caregivers were set loose to construct and decorate drawbridges, lift bridges or arch bridges. The results ranged from elegant to fantastic.

It was an excellent afternoon of creative scientific endeavor.

See an array of illustrative photos here:

The Sport of Kings (is built from LEGOs)

 In LEGO Club yesterday, we invented our own sports and games and built the fields of play out of LEGOs.  The rules of each sport are still a little unclear, but stay alert! The consequence of failure is mostly death.  

 

Stay on your toes to enjoy our obstacles courses!

Our races!

And our perilous climbing walls!

(With proper respect to the inspiration: American Ninja Warrior.)

We have one more week, so come back to invent with us again or join us for the first time.
