THURSDAY, JULY 27 at 10:00am at EJA Elementary School

Set sail with us on a thrilling action-packed adventure about a crew of quirky pirates marooned on a desert island. With mutiny and high-tide looming, they must rescue their salty captain and find a way to construct a ship before all hope is lost. Planks, sails, rigging, rails… what else could building a pirate ship possibly take?!  Throughout the story, volunteers from the audience will help explore the incredible science behind clouds, combustion, air pressure, scientific variables and more! Do not miss this refreshing nautical tale with a twist!
This is one of four library programs offered at Athens Summer Rec program at Edward J. Arthur Elementary School.  You do not need to be registered for Summer Rec to attend the program.

 Free Renewable Energy

We’ll use the sun and wind to create electricity!  Is it enough to light a lightbulb or make a car move?

We’ll heat water with grass clippings and bake cookies with heat from the sun. 

Come to the library to experiment with solar, wind, biomass and other renewable energy projects.

Every Wednesday at 3:30pm all summer long!
