STEAM Projects To Go brings a new project for May! STEAM Projects To Go are created for busy teens, grades 6 to 12, who still want to engage with library programming and their community. We will explore how plants grow and what kills them. The project will be to plant seed paper and will include an extra random packet of seeds to up the bounty! Students will learn how to create their own planters from paper as well. Further, it will inspire teens to take it one step further with a list of extension projects. Each Steam Project To Go includes: supplies needed for the project, instructions, information about the theme, a library book related to the theme, and ideas for more projects.

 Please contact Michelle Skaar at mskaar@sailsinc.org or call the library. All programs are free and open to the public.

    Contact: Michelle Skaar   5087584171   mskaar@sailsinc.org
   
Join us for a great book discussion of the award winning cookbook, Salt Fat Acid Heat by Samin Nosrat. In this cookbook, Samin Nosrat teaches how to master the use of just four elements—Salt, which enhances flavor; Fat, which delivers flavor and generates texture; Acid, which balances flavor; and Heat, which ultimately determines the texture of food. By explaining the hows and whys of good cooking, Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat will teach and inspire a new generation of cooks how to confidently make better decisions in the kitchen and cook delicious meals with any ingredients, anywhere, at any time.
 
Copies will be available to check out before the meeting.  
 
Don't forget to bring your tasty and not so tasty creations to the Zoom meeting! We will be discussing how successful this cookbook really is.
