MAD SCIENTIST DISCOVERS WEIGHT OF AIR

 

Does air have weight?  This scientist proved "yes" with four balloons, a dowel and a heavy base.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

What changes the size of a balloon?  Why is it important to mark the center of the dowel?  Get your questions answered TODAY at your library!

BUTTERFLY RELEASE

 

 

How fun!  There were enough butterflies for each of us to have our own to release.  Some flew immediately, some lingered in their packages and others hung out with their new BFFs.  It was a magical afternoon - thank you to everyone for your patience.

WHO LIKES EXTRA SUGAR IN THIER SCIENCE EXPERIMENTS? WE DO!

The ice cream was a lot of work, but didn't it taste great? 

 

I hope to see you all next Tuesday for more Summer Reading FUN!

BUTTERFLY RELEASE DELAYED UNTIL 1:00 PM

Lindsay Kuhn of Smoke Ridge Organic Farm will visit the library with 50 butterfly friends to teach and entertain people of ALL ages.  She describes her show as:

Everyone loves butterflies, especially up close and personal. They are a medium that unlocks the heart of angry teenagers, and are able to coax the shyest of children out of their shells. When there is a butterfly release in town, people literally drop everything to attend. The day of the event students learn how to identify host and nectar plants, what Monarch eggs, larvae, and pupal forms look like; how to tell a male from female and why the males have pheromone pouches on their wings. There is much discussion on native butterflies in NY and identifying specimens patrons have observed. Releases attract the attention of the local media, and are great publicity. I have Monarch, Painted Lady, Mourning Cloak, Eastern Black Swallowtail, and Red Admiral Butterflies this season. Wild-caught displays (not always available) might include Eastern Tailed Blue, Eastern Tiger Swallowtail, Clouded Sulphur, Cabbage White, White Admiral, and Baltimore Checkerspot. At the end of the program the butterflies are released either individually or as a group. This program is suitable for the 2014 Summer Reading Program.

ANNAMARIE DESTEFANIS THANKS MORRISTOWN YOUTH

AnnaMarie Destefanis, a patron of the library, came in Saturday in between shopping the village's fabulous yard sales.  She found perfect bargains but misplaced her wallet during the trip.  She was about to backtrack her steps when her phone rang.  It was the New York State Police and, you guessed it, they had her wallet.  Some kids on High Street had found it and then turned it in at the Morristown Fire and Rescue.  All her cards, her license (and most importantly her library card) are in it.  AnnaMarie thinks Morristown youth are the very best of sorts and I couldn't agree more!  KUDOS to the kids who did the right thing.  KUDOS to the parents who raised them so well.  KUDOS to the community of Morristown for supporting families in their very big mission. 

MORRISTOWN:  A GREAT PLACE TO LIVE
