We had a good crowd for The Blue Chameleon Quartet. Thanks to everyone who came out. If you want to hear more of them, check out these resources.
Do you think an egg can bounce? Your library staff investigated a book called How To Make a Bouncing Egg by Jennifer L. Marks. It says that if you leave an egg in vinegar for three days, the shell will dissolve but the membrane will thicken enough that the egg will bounce if dropped from an inch or two high.
As you can see, the shell does dissolve.
And by day three and four, the egg does become rubbery.
For the video with results, you will have to check out our Facebook page.
If you have kids, please take our brief survey about childrens’ programs at the library. We would love to have your input.
