(Virtual) Stay-at-Home STEM with Miss Stacey Video

Join Miss Stacey (Outreach and Circulation Librarian, Stacey Zubiel) for new STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) videos featuring lessons and activities that you can view and do at home with your children using materials you probably already have around your home.

In this month's Stay-at-Home STEM video, Miss Stacey talks a little about geometry and engineering, using toothpicks and jellybeans to show our younger scientists how different shapes are formed while challenging our older scientists to plan and build different structures using the same materials. All of the materials you need for this take-and-make activity (including printable flashcards and challenge cards) will be available at the pickup desk. Links to printables used for this activity will also be provided in the video post for our patrons who are not able to pick up a take-and-make kit.

The new video will be posted to Facebook on Thursday, April 15 at 11:00 AM, and accompanying take-and-make kits will be available at curbside pickup beginning Thursday, April 15. Check out the link below to see the newest STEM video, and [click here] to learn about this month's STEM activity kits!

(Virtual) Forever Young Adult Book Club

Enjoy Young Adult books? Join the Forever Young Adult Book Club for adults ages 18+, run by The Flint's YA Librarian, Nicole Dow. There we will pick a monthly YA novel to read and discuss at the following month's session; sessions will be hosted on Zoom.

This month's title: Dear Martin by Nic Stone

About the book:

"Justyce McAllister is a good kid, an honor student, and always there to help a friend—but none of that matters to the police officer who just put him in handcuffs. Despite leaving his rough neighborhood behind, he can't escape the scorn of his former peers or the ridicule of his new classmates.

Justyce looks to the teachings of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. for answers. But do they hold up anymore? He starts a journal to Dr. King to find out.

Then comes the day Justyce goes driving with his best friend, Manny, windows rolled down, music turned up—way up, sparking the fury of a white off-duty cop beside them. Words fly. Shots are fired. Justyce and Manny are caught in the crosshairs. In the media fallout, it's Justyce who is under attack." (via Amazon)

7:00 PM - 8:00 PM
(Virtual) The History of the Merrimack River & How to Clean It Up

Join local author and journalist Dyke Hendrickson as he discusses his new book, Merrimack: The Resilient River, An Illustrated Narrative of the Most Historic River in New England.

About the Book: Part history and part call to action, Dyke's well-researched book highlights the dramatic life of the Merrimack River, from the colorful days of the Native Americans to its current status as one of the most scenic recreational waterways in New England. The 117-mile river runs from central New Hampshire to Newburyport, Massachusetts, where it meets the Atlantic. Here the Coast Guard was born and colonial trade thrived. The Industrial Revolution was launched in the riverside mills of Lowell, Massachusetts and Manchester, New Hampshire. The science of clean drinking water was developed in Lawrence, Massachusetts and the first successful labor action also took place in Lawrence. Thousands of immigrants worked in mills along the Merrimack, and this book tells their riveting stories. In the 70s, the once-filthy Merrimack was cleaned up to serve again as one of the most popular waterways in New England. The Merrimack is still an essential resource. It serves as the source of drinking water for a half-million people. Many have seen part of the Merrimack River, but this unique book provides info and images about all sectors of this great waterway.

About the Author: Dyke Hendrickson is the outreach historian for the Merrimack River Watershed Council. In that role, he speaks on the history of the Coast Guard and of the Merrimack River. He graduated from Franklin and Marshall College with a degree in history, and he did graduate work at the University of Maine, Orono. He is a former writer and/or editor with the Portland Press Herald, the New Orleans Times-Picayune, the Boston Herald and The Daily News in Newburyport.

This event will be held on Wednesday, April 21 beginning at 7:00 PM via Zoom.
