COMBINED BOOK CLUB FOR TWEENS

Books for Boys and the Mother Daughter Book Club will be combined for the month of December. The book is The Last Holiday Concert by Andrew Clements.From Goodreads:

For Hart Evans, being the most popular kid in sixth grade has its advantages. Kids look up to him, and all the teachers let him get away with anything — all the teachers except the chorus director, Mr. Meinert. When Hart’s errant rubber band hits Mr. Meinert on the neck during chorus practice, it’s the last straw for the chorus director, who’s just learned he’s about to lose his job due to budget cuts. So he tells the class they can produce the big holiday concert on their own. Or not. It’s all up to them. And who gets elected to run the show? The popular Mr. Hart Evans.

Hart soon discovers there’s a big difference between popularity and leadership, and to his surprise, discovers something else as well — it’s really important to him that this be the best holiday concert ever, and even more important, that it not be the last.

Meet on Thursday December 9th at 6:30pm in the Community Room. 

Pick up your book club copy at the Front Circulation Desk. While supplies last.

Kid + Tween STEAM: Pom Pom Poppers!

Have lots of POPPING fun with this Pom-Pom Popper! The kit includes:

  • Paper clips
  • Balloons
  • Rubber bands
  • Launch material

Directions: 
1 – Cut the bottom off of the paper cup.
2 – Tie a knot at the open end of the balloon.
3 – Cut the top 1/2 inch of the balloon off, keeping the larger part with the knot.
4 -Stretch the cut end of the balloon over the bottom of the cup.
5 – Use the rubber band to keep the balloon in place around the bottom of the cup.
6 – Place launch material inside the cup
7 – Pull back on the knotted balloon and release to launch

Use the other cups to try other launching materials – like cotton balls or marshmallows. What happens when you use a different sized cup or launch a different material? Grab a ruler or tape measure to collect data taking measurements for the distance traveled for the different poppers.
