Kids tested the surface tension of water by seeing how many droplets they could fit on a coin, checked to see which fabric absorbed the most water and recorded everything in their science logs.
They also tested the density of different items by seeing if they'd float in a pool.
Everyone who participates in our summer reading programs—either by reading and/or attending library programs—has a chance to win prizes. Grand prizes include a $100 gift card from Toys ‘R’ Us for kids and Nook eReaders for teens and adults. The more someone reads, the better chance they have of winning something.
You can sign up for summer reading at any of Mentor Public Library’s branches.
