The date for this awesome program for our “Mad Scientists”-kids ages 7 and up- is Thursday July 17th at 6:00 pm. Kids and accompanying adults are invited to come to the library to make a boat that will float! We will supply a variety of wood, canvas, wood glue, screws and nails- plus some hand and power tools- you just need to bring your creativity and boat building ideas.
