Northeast Library Kids Stem Event And Author Reading Next Week

Tide Pool Tunes and Fishy Tales

On Monday from 3-4pm, the Northeast Branch of the Seattle Public Library, is having another kids STEM event called "Tide Pools and Fishy Tales."

The information says:
Stomp your way through the sand to a music-filled beach party with children’s author and songwriter Eric Ode! We’ll explore the seashore and learn about creatures that live in the big blue sea. For ages 3-7.

Through August 31, the Seattle Public Library’s free school-age through teens summer of learning  program “Zone In!” will feature a new focus on science, technology, engineering, art and math skills, funded by Google, The Seattle Public Library Foundation and U.S. Bank.

All Seattle Public Libraries received “science kits” donated by Google, which contain fun building materials, to help children practice their science and engineering skills.
The Library is also helping teens and tweens improve their digital media skills, such as art, activism, robotics, 3-D printing, computer programming, music, history and photography.

The Northeast branch summer schedule for children is
here and for teens/tweens is here.

And on August 13th from 6-7:45pm, award-winning writer Janice Steinberg, reads from her novel "The Tin Horse."

The information says:
Janice will chat about writing, obsession, persistence and luck. 
"The Tin Horse" is a multigenerational immigrant family saga, in which an elderly woman following a clue to the disappearance of her twin sister many years ago reminisces about their coming of age in a Los Angeles Jewish neighborhood in the years before World War II.
