Make Science Fun They Said…

You or your child may be halfway through the school year, and you are looking forward to some much-needed time off. However, how are the grades looking? My least favorite subject in school was science until my parents made it fun. You may be harboring some doubts right about now, but hear me out. Try combining learning experiences with actual experiments, and you will have a recipe for fun science!

The Library has a lot of resources to do just that; check out some of my all-time favorites below! 


The Holiday Shopping Season

The holiday shopping season is a tradition we usher in each and every year with Black Friday as we try to get our hands on the season's hottest gifts.

Global Entrepreneurship Week

It’s the most entrepreneurial time of the year!

Global Entrepreneurship Week is about to begin, and it’s a celebration of the start-ups and small business owners that are creating jobs and innovating our communities. It’s not just for seasoned entrepreneurs—GEW also offers inspiration for those with big ideas by providing networking, talks, workshops, and other events during November 10 - 22.

Not sure where to begin? Here are a couple of the events on my personal must-attend list:

Mid-Continent Public Library’s Proposition L Passes

Mid-Continent Public Library is pleased to announce the approval of Proposition L by voters in the Library’s district, which encompasses the majority of Jackson, Clay, and Platte Counties. Passing with a total of 62.3%, and support from the majority of voters in all three counties in the Library’s district, Prop L was put before the voters on November 8 as a means to maintain and expand the Library’s current operations—from programs and services to renovating or replacing aging facilities. 

Presidentially Pertinent Picture Books

In case you weren't aware, it's Election Day here in America, and most people will be spending the day watching the election closely. But regardless of the outcome of the election, this is a time when most Americans' interest in the presidency has been piqued, including America's kids. Take a few minutes to look through some presidential-themed books for kids. Some are fictional stories about fictional presidents; some are basic primers on actual U.S. Presidents.
