---- — ATKINSON — It’s nearing Thanksgiving time, and we’re serving turkey cookies on Mon., November 18, from 4:00-5:00 p.m. If you are between the ages of 5 and 10, come make yourself a special treat! Please register your little ones before it’s too late and the cookies disappear.

Bubble, bubbles - come one, come all! We’re hosting – ‘Bubbleology: The Secret World of Bubbles’ on Sat., November 23, from 1:00-2:00 p.m. As featured on the Discovery Channel, USA Today, Real Simple Family, American Profile, National Geographic TV... You can learn a lot from a bubble.

Keith Johnson’s Bubbleology—‘The Secret World of Bubbles’ is packed with state-of-the-art bubble sculptures that snare the attention of your audience. The science behind the magic unfolds like a mystery, making this show both educational and unforgettable.

How lucky are we that liquids, solids and gasses, geometry, history, tension, pressure, soap films etc all relate directly to the curriculum of K-5th grade students? From encasing a dinosaur and then a kid in a bubble to crafting a glistening fog-filled Eiffel Tower, these sculptures are full of memorable science lessons. The world around us is a fascinating place. Science and art allow us to explore the world in meaningful ways. All ages must register.

This program was generously sponsored by the Atkinson Lions Club. We are ‘thankful’ this time of year especially for our benefactors.

The library will be closed on Mon., November 11, in honor of Veterans Day. Please plan accordingly. (Stock up on two-day loans on Fri., November 8!)
