ATKINSON —The summer reading saga continues. Children, tweens, and teens may still register to read and win prizes. We still have some available places in a few of our events, and some events do not require registration. We have a good problem this year, i.e. many of our activities are booked to capacity. We apologize if you have attempted to register and are unable to do so. We have a certain amount of staff and supplies and are unable to accommodate everyone at once. If you are on a waiting list it’s possible that a spot may open up for you. Thank you for liking our events so much!

Spaces remain at the time of publication in the following events: ‘Beneath the Surface’ Frisbee Show & Playshop for Grades 5 and up on July 17 (registration required), ‘We Dig Mad Science’ for all ages on July 24 (no registration necessary), ‘We Dig Fairy Frolics’ for kindergarten through grade 5 on July 25 (registration required), ‘Beneath the Surface’ Jewelry Making for grades 5-12 on July 31 (registration required), ‘We Dig the Diggers’ for kindergarten through grade 5 on August 5 (registration required), and the summer reading finale with Squeezebox Stompers on August 8. Please check online or give us a call for more details.

We are excited to have some of our favorite performers with us on Wed., July 24, from 6:30-7:30 p.m. Mad Science is back! This fun-filled, science performance, ‘Dig into Science!’ is designed to get kids excited about the science that happens underneath the ground! From the layers of the earth to the critters that live in the soil to natural phenomena that occur underground, kids will discover some amazing things as we dig deeper! The science of ‘digging deep’ is presented with topics such as earth’s layers, stalactites and stalagmites, soggy soil, underground creatures, tectonic plates and earthquakes, and volcanoes. ‘Dig into Science!’ is designed to entertain and educate. All ages are welcome to attend without registration. Most concepts are geared for elementary through high school.
