Make Armpit Fudge!

Make Armpit Fudge at the library! July 22nd, 3:30 pm

Make Armpit Fudge  you can eat!

This Tuesday,  July 22nd  at 3:30pm

Children’s Room,  Richards Free Library

Come to the library to make fudge in a plastic bag, and cook it with your own body heat!

Don’t worry–the fudge will stay in the baggies, and when we’re done, it will taste like fudge and not like armpits!
All ages welcome. Littler hands may want some help measuring, so children under five please bring parental assistance.




Lego Car Racing!

Today, Saturday July 19th!

Come build, come watch, come race, come cheer! Come to the library for the Great Science Derby of 2014!
Building starts at 11:00, and we’ll go outside to start racing our vehicles at 11:30.

All ages welcome, but parents, please remember that Legos are a choking hazard for children age 3 and younger.
