YOUTH SOAP-MAKING EVENT WITH RADIANT GEM'S MELANIE CONNOR

This is a very exciting event for Morristown families and I certainly hope that many will be able to take advantage of Melanie's generosity of her materials and her time.

Here's the scoop:

This craft is intended so that children may create a bar of home-made soap as a Valentine's present.  Due to the nature of the process this special event requires that children bring an adult with them.  Call it a "Mommy and Me"  or a "Grandpa and Me" afternoon, as the experience always turns out to be the longest lasting and favorite part of the gift, eh?

Melanie is providing everything we will need to create a beautiful bar of naturally scented soap - all you need to bring is a plastic sandwich bag to transport it home. 

Registration at 375-8833 during library hours is strongly encouraged to ensure adequate supplies for the entire group.  We would hate to have to turn people away for lack of supplies.

SCHOOL SUPPLIES FROM NIKKI JOHNSON-POOLE

49 Morristown youth ranging in age from pre-K to 11th grade were supplied with school supplies at the library Saturday morning free of charge.  Nikki Johnson-Poole of Unionville, CT has been collecting book bags, binders, notebooks, pencils, pens, markers, glue, crayons, protractors, colored pencils and MORE for almost a year in order to sponsor this special program.  She is an extreme couponer and philanthropist at heart.  Her mother Kandi and grandmother Kathy live in Morristown and had the very fun job of distributing these supplies. 

THANK YOU, Kandi, Kathy and Nikki!  YOU HAVE HELPED MANY FAMILIES PREPARE THEIR CHILDREN FOR SCHOOL!

MORE WONDERFUL SCIENCE AT THE MPL!

 

Mia Brunette produced today's two experiments with (a little) help from her Grandpa, Greg Brunette.  We each saw (with our very own eyes) how temperature fluctuations move air and create wind!  In her second experiment we saw how salt changes the density of water.  Wow, Mia - you are a super scientist, for sure!  To see the entire photo album from today's group be sure to visit us on Facebook.

COMPUTER AREA BECOMES MORE ACCOMODATING

 

Greg Thibert volunteered his skills to assemble 6 new chairs and 2 kiosks tonight.  Each of the new pieces were carefully chosen to better utilize the tiny computer area's small space and add as much comfort as possible to our patrons.  Thank you, Greg!  It looks wonderful and we ALL appreciate your help.
