AV Family Fun Day

We partnered with the City of Ironton and the Arcadia Valley Trail Association to provide a fun day for Arcadia families.  There was hiking, fishing, food, and we provided rock painting!  It was a hot day but the park was beautiful!

Breakout EDU

Kids and teens at all of our branches and even a couple of outreach locations got to experience Breakout EDU this summer.  Unfamiliar with Breakout EDU?  It’s similar to the concept of an escape room, but instead of breaking out of a room in a specific time, you are trying to break into a box.  Kids had 45 minutes to solve clues and puzzles to unlock their box that had anywhere from 5-7 locks on it.  Some of the games were based on Dr. Seuss, dystopian novels, shapes, and more!

The Science of Sound

Mad Science of St. Louis visited all four of our branches for a wonderful performance called The Science of Sound.  We learned all about how sound travels and what sound waves are and how different sounds can be created from everyday objects found around the house.  The kids (and adults) really enjoyed themselves!  Some of the highlights of the performances were “Frankenpickle” and the potato shooter.  See the pics below!
