Kick off our week in Neverland with Peter Pan, pizza, and prizes after the library closes. We'll watch Hook (PG), make crafts, and play games. Did we mention pizza? Limited to 20 teens. Registration information coming soon.

Kids will have fun learning physics using this awesome online tool that lets them build different contraptions that help them reach their goal. Each level challenges kids to think differently about how to build better and smarter machines that can carry, lift, or swing an object into their goal box using real-world laws of physics. Great for aspiring inventors and budding engineers.

The Discovery hands on program explores all sorts of different topics, including science, literature, technology, and more. Especially designed for elementary aged kids, come back each week and learn something new!

Today at Laura’s, we’ll be playing a game called “Blind Art.” In small teams, we’ll describe a painting to the team’s leader – a “blind artist” who has the painting taped onto their back! At the end of the game, we’ll each have made some awesome art – our own interpretations of some classic paintings – some funny, some strange, some beautiful – but all of it fun!
