Plans for the summer reading program, "FIZZ, BOOM, READ" are under way at Cole Library, Mount Vernon's public library.
The kickoff party at Hills Bank and Trust is Tuesday, May 20, from 5 to 6:30 p.m. There will be fun science activities, including games, experiments, and food. If you are unable to attend the kickoff, you can stop in the library and sign up at the first floor circulation desk after May 20.

Due to the amount of prep and materials required for this program, you must call 895-4271 to reserve your spot. A list of the workshops can be found on our website, www.colelibrary.org
Hands on science
We are partnering with Cornell faculty for several fun hands-on science labs. Since these are in the works, check our library website or the newsletter to find out more as these events unfold.
Story time continues every Thursday morning at 9:30. We will be experiencing the sciences through stories, songs, games and crafts.
