Fizz, Boom, Read is this year's summer reading theme for children.  This year's Kick-Off event "Science Magic" is being presented by the staff at the Museum of Science in Boston. Did you ever wonder how magic tricks really work? This program investigates the science behind the “magic” of several classic magic tricks. You might learn how to snatch a tablecloth without disturbing the items on top, make a balloon fireproof, and use electromagnetism to defy gravity. For the grand finale, our educator demonstrates how science can make it safe to lie down on a real bed of nails.Registration is required for this event.

Parking at the library will be crowded during this event. Please use the lot in front of the Quinn Public Safety Building (across the street from the library) for overflow parking. Carpooling with friends is encouraged.

Funding for this program is provided by the Friends of the Nevins Memorial Library.

The register buttons for the events will not be active until that time. Please sign up for events you plan to attend. If you see an event that is full, please place your name on the waiting list. We frequently call people on our waiting lists. Be kind to everyone. If your plans change and you can no longer come to an event, we ask that you call the Children's Desk at 978-686-4080 ext. 26.
