We're kicking off this summer's intriguingly-named reading club with Piccirillo Sciencetelling's Magical Potions Show. All family members are welcome to this program that features screaming quarters, jets of gas to taste, popping potions, incredible showers of smoke-filled bubbles, and buckets of fog!

Wednesday June 11th at 7:15 (register beginning June 1st)

The Fizz, Boom Read Club will explore everything from kitchen chemistry to the science of sound and music. Each week new wonders await discovery. This 5 week program is open to students entering 1st through 5th grades.

Tuesdays from 3:30 to 4:30 starting on June 24th.

Registration begins May 27th. Call to register, or even better, stop by in person. We love to see you! We need student name, grade in fall, and phone number.

GlaxoSmithKline's Science in the Summer is a unique and creative program that introduces students to the wonderful and fascinating world of science.

This summer's topic is Genetics: All About You. Have you ever wondered why your best friend has brown eyes and her brother has blue eyes? Why your hair is curly and your sister's is straight? Discover the answers by being curious, organized, wise, inventive, and patient.

Registration runs May 1st thru 30th. If there are more than 32 sign-ups, selection will be by lottery. Furness Library is offering the class in the morning at 10 a.m. for students entering 2nd & 3rd grades, and at 11 a.m. for students entering 4th thru 6th grades.

We are hosting the class Monday, July 21st thru Thursday, July 24th. Registration is in person only during library hours as we need a parent/gaurdian signature.

With one of the smallest paid staffs of any library in Delaware County, Helen Kate needs the support of volunteers. If you're able to give two to three hours every-other week, please give the Library a call, 610-566-9331.
