We hope you all had a restful and delicious holiday and got to spend quality time with family and friends - for us gerbils, we are both family AND friends!

Winter Break Programs
Bubble Wonders Show - December 27, 11am.
Watch spellbound as bubbleologist Akins creates bubble caterpillars, ice cream cones, a snowman, a volcano, dancing bubbles, a bubble merry-go-round and a bubble around a real kid. You'll never look at bubbles the same way again! One adult per family group - make sure to register each attendee separately!
Close Encounters of the Chemical Kind - January 3, 2pm.
Try fun, exciting hands-on experiments that create magic drawings, slime, superballs, and chemically altered "gold" and "silver" coins: all yours to take home. Witness chemical reactions involving exploding foam and dazzling displays of fire and liquid nitrogen! (In a safe environment.) This is a drop-off program - no adults (or gerbils) allowed!
Winter storytime registration begins on December 3.
Stay entertained over winter break & participate in Book Patch! Earn sew-on patches for reading books!
Lots of work has been done in Adult Services this week - metal framing for the staff offices and the new digital media lab has gone up. Check the renovation blog for photos!
