Magical science

Celebrate NVCL’s Year of Science with the Library Fairies!

Tulip, Bluebell, Orchid, and Daisy are learning all about science this summer, and they want your help! From June to August, you can write the Library Fairies a letter, and they will write back. Ask them a science question (like "why do fish have gills?" or "why does the moon have bumps?"), and they will try to answer! The Fairies also love to get drawings and pictures.

Print our letter template, or pick one up at the Children’s Desk. Then find the Fairy Mailbox in the Children’s Department, and put your letter inside! You’ll receive your reply in 2 – 3 weeks.

You can also send the fairies a virtual letter.


Magical Science: Take & Make Kits

The Fairies have also put together special science-themed Take & Make kits for you to experiment with! There will be a new kit available in June, July, and August. Make sure you’re signed up for the NVCL newsletter to get notified when the next kits are available.

Available now: Bubble wands!

Learn to make your own magical bubble wand, and experiment with bubbles! Email to reserve. Wait for an email confirmation with pick-up instructions.
