Wednesdays, August 2 and 30, 6-7:30 pm, Dorothy Busch Branch

School age children and their families are invited to drop in at the Busch and Miller branches to explore STEAM concepts with the library’s new maker kits.

A new kit or two will be available each week for children to play, learn, and explore a different area of Science, Technology, Engineering, Art or Math. Each kit will contain a book on the subject, objects and tools for simple projects, and activities related to that kit’s STEAM topic. Stop by and try something new!

This is a drop-in program, no registration needed. Please call the Miller Library at 586.751.5377 or the Busch Library at 586.353.0580 for more information.

This project is funded (in part) with a Library Services and Technology Act grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services administered by the Library of Michigan.”

Monday, August 21, 12 pm, Civic Center Library

On the afternoon of Monday, August 21, something will happen in the sky above America that hasn’t happened in 99 years: a total solar eclipse visible from coast to coast! Though we won’t have a total eclipse in these parts, we will see a partial eclipse-almost 80% of the sun will be covered-still an impressive sight!

Children of all ages are invited to join us to learn about solar eclipse safety and make pinhole projectors from everyday materials. The eclipse starts at 1:03 p.m. and ends at 3:47 p.m.! Additionally, we will have a limited supply of eclipse viewing glasses to handout that day!

No registration is required for this drop-in program.
