ATKINSON —Continuing with our ongoing summer reading article… we have so many exciting events coming up for preschool, elementary, middle and high school ages for the summer. Please remember to first register for summer reading as a whole and then register for each individual event that you plan to attend.

SPARK an LED THROWIE! This should ‘spark’ an interest in all t/weens ages 10-19. On Tues., July 8, at 6:30 p.m. we’ll be making LED throwies, learning the science behind them, and then throwing them at some targets. LED throwies are an inexpensive way to add color to any ferromagnetic surface in your neighborhood. A throwie consists of a lithium battery, a 10mm diffused LED and a rare-earth magnet taped together. Throw it up high and in quantity to impress your friends and city officials. Our guest scientist for the evening of throwies will be Dan Heer. Come make a throwie, toss at some targets, and light up your night!

This program is for residents only up until the day of the event. Non-residents can sign-up 24 hours prior to the event should space open for additional participants. Age restrictions will be enforced. Raffle tickets will be awarded to “Spark a Reaction” t/weens that register and attend.

SPARK a CODE ORANGE discussion! Lovers of candy and exciting books need to rush to the library to get their copy of ‘Code Orange’ by Caroline Cooney. This edge-of-your-seat thriller will leave you breathless. This event is open to t/weens ages 10-19 on Wed., July 9, at 6:30 p.m. For middle and high school students who have registered for the event, read and attend, this is worth four raffle tickets in the jar toward your goal of winning prizes and covering Kathy with critters and creatures! Non-residents and guests are welcome to attend but must procure a copy of the book on their own.
