Grab-And-Go Mad Scientist Club is here! Register online, pick up at the library, and do the project at home!
This month's project is DIY Kaleidoscopes! The kit comes with everything you need to complete the project, EXCEPT a hot glue gun. Standard size glue sticks will be included in the kit, but you will need to supply your own glue gun. If you do not have one, we have a very limited number available on a first come, first served basis. If you borrow one, it must be returned to the library by 10/5.
Please register each child SEPARATELY. There are limited supplies and we expect the list to fill up. Kits will be available to pick up at the library starting Friday 9/18 at 9am. Call 616-457-9620 to pick up your kit curbside, or stop in at the circulation desk. Kits must be picked up by Monday 9/21 at 8:30pm.

In the summer of 1979, in Thüringen, in East Germany, two families put together a crazy plan. They are desperate to leave the DDR for the 'West' and plan to flee in a homemade hot air balloon. After sewing and tinkering for weeks, the amateurs make their first attempt. Meters from the West German border, their balloon suffers from the rain and crash lands. Luckily, they manage to avoid being caught by the police. However, the wreckage from their escape attempt is found and that triggers a desperate manhunt. The tension rises as the families determine to try again, and a race against time ensues. On the one hand, the authorities, desperate to track down the traitors, become aware that a second attempt is being planned. On the other, the would-be escapees, conscious of the search drawing ever nearer, need to build a more robust, weatherproof balloon - and avoid leaving too many clues. Based on a true story. 2h 5m. Registration is required.
