Marshmallow construction

How high do you think you can go? The task is simple: in eighteen minutes, teams must build the tallest free-standing structure out of 20 sticks of spaghetti, one yard of tape, one yard of string, and one marshmallow. The marshmallow needs to be on top.  Try your hand at this construction challenge  on Thursday, Aug. 22nd at 2:00 pm at the Adams Shore Branch Library.

Magic with Steve Rudolph at North Quincy

Magician Steve Rudolph will be at our North Quincy branch this Monday, the 15th, at 2:00 p.m. Help Steve dig for a leprechaun's pot of gold, grow carrots by magic, find a pirate's buried treasure and coax a rabbit out of his hole. You'll get to see all these tricks and more at Magic You'll Dig.

Manga Drawing Workshop

Our fourth Saturday program in April was a Manga drawing workshop for children aged 8 and up. Massachusetts-based artist Shauna Leva led the workshop, which focused on teaching the kids how to use manga and anime art styles to make their own cartoons. The kids had a great time learning to draw faces and characters and came into the Children's Room after to show off their work.

Mad Science - Bugs

In April our Mad Science Workshop for ages 4-8 investigated creepy crawly (and useful and interesting!) bugs. Sure, no one likes a mosquito bite, but bugs can be fascinating and also helpful! Take a look for bugs outside then see what you can learn about them in a book or online.

For some great bug stories and bug information, try looking in our catalog.
