JULY 13 | SUMMER READING GAME ENTERTAINMENT

Sciencetellers’ “Aliens—Escape from Earth”

Sciencetellers offers an adventure that’s out of this world. During a midnight meteor shower, something mysterious falls from the sky toward Earth — but it’s not a shooting star. Two curious kids venture into the forest to investigate and find themselves mixed up with a family of visitors from another planet. Pursued by a crazy space scientist, they must rescue the aliens and get them back to their spaceship — before it’s too late! The Sciencetellers’ family entertainment is part of “A Universe of Stories” summer reading fun at the library. The special effects for this action-packed story are provided by science experiments, with loads of audience participation. Ideal for grades K through 5.

Exhibitions

OTTINGER ROOM GALLERY

FIBER DRAWINGS

By Mary McFerran

Exploring the use of scissor cuts, stitches, chalk, layers, mono-chrome and color on assorted textiles and paper, these drawings are inspired by the spaces created between trees that have shed their leaves. Deciduous trees are abundant in our Northeast area and during winter months, I feel surrounded by the shapes they reveal. They express open spaces in life, preparing for change and renewal.

May 4 through June 28, 2019

Reception Sunday, May 5th from 2:00 - 4:00 p.m.
