Teaching artist Jay Mankita guides and inspires kids to construct delightfully complicated contraptions that accomplish simple tasks. Kids will use dominoes, Popsicle sticks, rubber bands, string, ping pong balls, pulleys, buckets, tracks, ramps, lego cars, etc…, as well as Jay’s pre-constructed catapults, mini-zip lines, screwbolt time-spirals, ball-drops, trajectory bouncers, lever-action direction changers, and yardstick marble runs, to create mayhem in the library. See his website for more info.
Please register in advance by calling the library or signing up on our website

Join us for a discussion of Today Will Be Different by Maria Semple
Copies of the book available at the library!
Eleanor knows she’s a mess. But today, she will tackle the little things. She will shower and get dressed. She will have her poetry and yoga lessons after dropping off her son, Timby. She won’t swear. She will initiate sex with her husband, Joe. But before she can put her modest plan into action, life happens. Today, it turns out, is the day Timby has decided to fake sick to weasel his way into his mother’s company. It’s also the day Joe has chosen to tell his office — but not Eleanor — that he’s on vacation. Just when it seems like things can’t go more awry, an encounter with a former colleague produces a graphic memoir whose dramatic tale threatens to reveal a buried family secret. A hilarious, heart-filled story about reinvention, sisterhood, and how sometimes it takes facing up to our former selves to truly begin living.
