Teens finished their invention prototypes during Part II of our “Take apart electronics & Make Inventions” summer reading program. Stop by the Steele Memorial Library to see the display of their projects!

Pictured: James, with his “Car Cooler” made from a bread machine; Adam, with a storage box made from an hard drive tower; Mathew: sound box made from a vacuum cleaner head, Sage (with Mr. Schoonover): a Phone device. 

Thanks to the Science & Discovery Center for leading the program; Thanks to Tom at VOA (Volunteers of America) on Sullivan St. in Elmira, for donating old electronics.

Teen Summer Reading Club Update

Teens! Thank you for continuing to put the amount of minutes you are reading on our website for teen summer reading (any reading you do counts). We need those numbers so: you get prizes and we get more $ allotted for teen programming. More reading minutes = more $ for library teen fun! http://ny.evanced.info/ccld/sr/homepage.asp?ProgramID=14  Summer reading ends August 9th!

Forgot how to add minutes to your online reading log? Directions are at:
