Come to the body shop this Sunday at 4pm. We’ll be putting our knowledge of the human body’s bones & organs — along with some obscure facts — to good use in constructing model humans fit for display.
Note the two Sundays the library will be closed, followed by an End-of-Summer Party. Everyone’s invited!
July was a busy month. Between Sundays, Adrian and Kary traveled to Apalachicola to help a group of kids in the Project Impact Summer Program produce “Crossing Jordan, On Stage” — Adrian’s first novel that she adapted for the stage, complete with original songs by Craig and Kary.
It was great fun. We thought you’d like to see some of the pics. You can find them at the new blog http://crossingjordanonstage.wordpress.com.
It was another fascinating trip as Craig shared mementos, history, and artifacts from his life in China.

Ever wonder how fast air is moving when you blow out a candle? Kids at The Front Porch Library (SM) found out when they used a hand-held weather station to measure wind speed. This was just one of the mysteries revealed when teams — led by the intrepid FSU Circle K volunteers Arsenio, Antonio, and Elisa — completed an elaborate scavenger hunt. There were mystery items to identify, mystery smells, a search for a heart-shaped leaf, a book with a fruit on its title, and many more. In case you wondered, the peanut butter jar held 777 dried beans … and it wasn’t even full!

The Front Porch Library (SM) will be closed on Sunday, April 24th for the Easter holiday. We will open again on Sunday, May 1st for regular library hours (4 – 6pm).
Children will be encouraged to add items to the Library’s Time Capsule, which will be sealed at the end of the month and not opened again for two years.
SAVE THE DATE: June 12th will be a celebration of The Library’s 2nd birthday.

The dogs were the stars as Randi led them through the agility course. It was loads of fun, especially when the kids got to help. A big “Thank You” to Randi, Tai, and Tripp for such a special program.

This past Sunday we had 10 adults and 16 kids romping it up at the library. The numbers are stunning. So glad the weather was nice. A big thank you to Jennifer M, Jen, Tracy, Melissa, Sally, Michelle, and Mackie for keeping things running smoothly while Adrian was away and Kary was busy.
Beautiful moments abounded … Tony doing the hoola hoop. Tracy fixing her crossbow arrows. Jen getting kids doing anything they could think of with card stock and magazines. Jennifer on the blanket sharing books with Iris. Zay organizing a circle ball game for everybody. Lots of icing. Heaps of popcorn. Some great read-alouds. The start of spring couldn’t be better.
