Tompkins County Public Library to Host Wacky Science Wednesdays

Post date: Jun 19, 2014 11:56:34 AM

Book-loving aspiring scientists are invited to join Tompkins County Public Library for “Wacky Science Wednesdays,” a program that combines reading, inventing, creating and experimenting.

Children in grades three through five will meet each Wednesday, July 16 through August 27 from 1 to 2 p.m. in the Library’s Thaler/Howell Programming Room. Participants will read a novel selected by the group and explore science with fun, hands-on activities and experiments.

During the last Wacky Science Wednesday meeting, members of Ithaca Generator will help participants create a special project. This program is free; however, registration is encouraged.

To register, visit or call the Youth Services Reference Desk at (607) 272-4557 extension 275. Programs will not be held July 30 or August 6.

Wacky Science Wednesdays are being held in conjunction with “Fizz, Boom, Read!,” the Library’s 2014 Summer Reading Program.

TCPL’s 2014 Summer Reading Programming has been made possible by the Tompkins County Public Library Foundation with support from the Harmon Foundation, the Youth Services Programming Endowment Fund, the Michael Kammen Children’s Fund, and the Myrtle Dee Nash Memorial Fund of the Community Foundation of Tompkins County.
