Kerbal Space Program

Come to the library and play Kerbal Space Program, a popular space simulator game, and learn about the science behind NASA by launching little green men into space.  Library "space experts" will be on hand to help lead you through the game's beginning trial and error, and help explain the science concepts.

American Beauty

Sunday, July 31, 2016 -
2:00pm to 3:30pm
From squeezing into hoop crinoline skirts to spackling their skin with make-up, American women have gone to amusing and sometime horrifying lengths in their quest for beauty. Travel through more than a century of magazine ads, patent illustrations, and artifacts to learn the fascinating stories behind such feminine enhancements as the push-up bra, the rubber girdle, chip-proof nail polish, dusky mascara, and kiss-proof lipstick.
