SCIENCE CENTRAL: SCIENCE ROCKS
Wednesday, June 5th from 12pm-2pm
Science Central will visit NMPL for a special Science Rocks program! This event will run from 12pm to 2pm and participants are welcome to come at any time during that 2 hour time period to check out the fun, interactive stations available to explore! Kids will “dig” this program delving into Indiana’s geology. Why is Indiana so flat? We will recreate in one afternoon what happened over a very long period of time. Dig into Indiana’s past and discover the sea animals that used to live here. Heat, pressure, and time are the primary ingredients for metamorphic rock, and participants will make a rock model of their own!
FANTASTIC FUN RUN
Saturday, June 29th @ 9am
The North Manchester Public Library presents the annual Fantastic Fun Run for our community. Plan on joining us for a fun-filled family event that supports the library! Run, walk, skip, jump, stroll... all forms of participation are welcome! The Fantastic Fun Run is a color run, so wear white to enjoy the full color run experience, or wear another color to avoid being splattered in color. All proceeds of this event go to the North Manchester Public Library to enhance the programs and resources that the library offers to the community. To register, or to find more info, click HERE.
