Due to circumstances beyond our control, the library will be closed this Monday, April 9th. We apologize for the inconvenience.
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.
We are now on YouTube! So far we’ve posted a few science experiments, because we love science! Who knows what we might produce next!
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.
