What’s Happening at the Library
Get your science groove going on first Mondays at 3:30 p.m. with Mad Science Explorers’ Club. The next session will meet Monday, April 1st from 3:30 to 5:00 p.m. to learn about WATER QUALITY. Weather depending, we will meet at the library, then caravan down to Creitz Park to study macroinvertebrates to see what the species and population numbers will tell us about the water quality of Creitz Creek.
(Parents/caregivers: please stay to provide transportation. Participants will need to wear boots or old shoes and pants that you don’t mind getting muddy.) In case of bad weather, the group may study a watershed model at the library. Leading the Explorers is Cambridge City’s own cool science guy, Jonathan Ferris, the Director of Purdue Extension. Mad Science Explorer’s Club sessions are suggested for 4th – 8th graders. Space is limited, so please call the library at 765-478-3335 to reserve your spot—and you don’t have to commit to the entire series.
We are beginning a new program on Thursdays at 3:30 p.m. to help children practice their reading skills called “Paws for Reading.” Beginning Thursday, April 4th, Children, grades K-5 can sign up for a 15 minute session to read to a retired guide or therapy dog with the expert guidance of trainer Jill Moore. When children practice reading with a comforting, patient, non-judgmental canine listener, they gain confidence and increase their enjoyment of reading time. To sign up for your spot, call the library at 765-478-3335. A signed waiver is required to participate.

Bags are supplied by the Friends. This is too crazy to miss! The Friends have put out quite a few new donations, so please come have a look.
