Kids participated in hands-on STEM activities, such as creating "thaumatropes" -- a 19th century toy that merges 2 separate images into one, using string and 2 small disks. They also constructed paper airplanes-- fulfilling one MCPL Summer Read & Learn activity -- and played large-scale Jenga, built from 12-can soda boxes!

Customers of all ages have been enjoying the 'jigsaw puzzle table' in Olney's main gallery. Some stop by for just a few minutes, others stay an hour or longer to contribute to the growing puzzle. This was a challenging one with 1,000 pieces, but by working together, Olney customers quickly completed the puzzle of New York's Times Square... join the fun the next time you stop by Olney!
