Food for Fines

 

We are celebrating our birthday the week of April 10-14.  We’re 8!  As usual, we are asking you for gifts of donations to the Lonsdale Area Food Shelf.  Please drop off your unexpired non-perishable food and/or personal care items at the library that week.  For any size donation, we will waive up to $10 per card of late fees from Lonsdale Public Library.  We cannot waive lost item charges or fees from other libraries.

Planning to join us for author Peter Geye on Thursday, April 12th at 7:00 pm?  Good idea!  That’s a good chance to bring in some donations!

Wednesday mornings!

You asked for more morning hours and we listened.  Starting April 1st, we will be open at 10 am on Wednesdays.

Bouncing egg experiment

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.
