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.

We had our monthly program at the Front Porch Library. “Words to Wear.” Each kid came up with some words to live by and put them on a T shirt. They ranged from the courageous, “Stand Tall, Don’t Fall” to the fierce, “Eat Or Be Eaten” to the personal, “Pit bulls, a Gir’ls Best Friend,” to the just plain hard to explain, “Give Or Not Give.” A great time was had by all!
A great afternoon at the Front Porch Library! We baked whole wheat blueberry muffins (I was afraid I’d be keel-hauled for deviating from the cupcake regimen but the kids loved baking (aka stealth math)–and I used up almost all the frozen blueberries from last year. Win-win!

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!
