Come join us this summer as we “Build a Better World” at the Tyson Library
Our Summer Discovery sessions will kick-off on Saturday, June 10 from 12-2 with “Touch a Truck.” Stop in at the library on June 10 to pick up a Bingo card and begin touring the trucks. Come see all the big trucks, including a HUMVEE! Start at the library and visit each truck to fill up your BINGO card for a prize!
Also, register for our summer Discovery programs. There is a session for every age group preschool through adult! Preschool will meet on Tuesdays, Grades 1-3 on Wednesdays, Grades 4-6 on Thursdays, and Teens on Fridays. Sessions run from June 13 – July 21. All sessions meet at 10:30 a.m. except for teens who meet at 1:00 p.m.
Activities will include building challenges, Legos, Exploring our world, games, science fun, and much more! For every session you attend, you can put a ticket in for one of our GRAND PRIZES! Also, check out some books and add bricks to our LEGO creation!
Some special programs offered this summer will be a snake presentation, a naturalist from the Versailles State park sharing some nature and animals, The Humane Society, and the “Birds of Prey” program from Hardy Lake.
Come help us “Build a Better World”!
Are you ready for the solar eclipse? Learn about it and watch it with us!!
On August 21st a spectacular total eclipse of the Sun will be visible across the width of the continental United States for the first time since 1918! Though every state will have at least 60% of the Sun covered by the Moon, those of us in a narrow path from Oregon to South Carolina will see the stunning beauty of total coverage. We are collaborating with the 6th grade at South Ripley Elementary and teacher Julia Heidlage, to have events for the community to learn about and watch the eclipse.
The first event will be held on August 12th at 11:00 am; this will be an informational session at Tyson Library that will cover safe viewing techniques as well as projection maps and viewing areas. (Accommodations will be made for those with disabilities that would like to join us).
The second event will be viewing of the eclipse at South Ripley Elementary school on August 21st. Informational videos will be streamed into the classrooms prior to the viewing. Members of the community, as well as Tyson Library staff, will join the student body and staff (over 900 people) in an area next to the school, to view the event. Viewing glasses will be given to all who attend. These events are open to the entire community. All programs are free of charge.
