Register for Adult Summer Reading now! Runs through July 31st.
The Alzheimer's Association, Heart of America Chapter will help us understand the diseases Alzheimer's and dementia. What is the difference? What are the warning signs to look for? When is forgetting normal, and when does it point to something worse?
More and more Americans are being diagnosed with this progressive disease. In fact, Alzheimer's is the 6th leading cause of death in the United States. Amazingly, someone develops the disease every 67 seconds, and that's just in the United States.
REGISTRATION REQUIRED. Adults only. This program is part of the multi-library summer program. Participants need to read the short story Nellie by Vanessa Barbara. You can pick up a copy at the library or check out an e-version from Hoopla.
Participants will need to bring a large mixing bowl, a small bowl (at least cereal bowl sized), a mixing spoon, and a 9" square baking pan.
The author of our short story Nellie, Vanessa Barbara, is from the southern part of Brazil. We will create a traditional Brazilian crumb cake from this region. Then participants will finish off the cake at home by baking.
While we work on our delicious crumb cake, we'll talk about our author and our short story.
Family-friendly BUT for ages 8 years old and up.
Astronomer Kevin Manning, a former consultant with NASA, has always been passionate about astronomy, and wants to share the excitement with you! During the indoor portion of the program, you’ll learn about the size and scale of the universe, the stars, and other celestial wonders using hands-on activities and assorted visuals.
Then, we'll head outoors for a guided look at the night sky and view the rings of Saturn, craters on the moon, etc. through a powerful hand-crafted telescope.
