Wednesday Program - Science Center of Iowa Jun 28, 2017 from 12:00 PM to 01:00 PM
Building Blunders” introduces children to the marvels of engineering and explores the role of failure as a tool to build even better things. Through hands-on demonstrations, children will learn about building blunders that topple, tilt or twirl – and what engineers can learn from those blunders. The Science Center of Iowa’s Science @ Your Site outreach program brings fun, engaging experiments to schools and libraries across Iowa. This program highlights the importance of science learning and experimentation beyond the classroom and reflects SCI’s mission to engage and inspire Iowans along their journey of lifelong science learning.

CommUnity Book Club--The Life We Bury Jun 22, 2017 from 07:00 PM to 08:00 PM
This month's CommUnity Book Club selection is Allen Esken's suspenseful and award-winning debut novel. College student, Joe Talbert, interviews care home resident and Vietnam veteran, Carl Iverson, for a class writing assignment. He soon learns that Carl has been in jail and is paroled to the nursing home because his health is rapidly declining and he has been given a short amount of time to live. As Joe's interviews continue, he has a harder and harder time reconciling Carl's alleged violent past with the heroic veteran he is getting to know, and seeks to uncover the real truth about Carl's past before it's too late. Contact the library to obtain a copy of this book and join in the discussion.

North by Northwest--Great Directors Film Series Jun 12, 2017 from 01:00 PM to 03:00 PM
We conclude the 1950s portion of our Great Directors Series with Alfred Hitchcock's 1959 classic, North by Northwest. Starring Cary Grant, Eva Marie Saint and James Mason, North by Northwest is an American thriller whose electrifying plot turns on a case of mistaken identity: Roger Thornhill, a innocent man (Grant), is pursued across the United States by agents of a mysterious organization. Thornhill is trying to prevent government secrets from being smuggled out of the country by the insidious group, and they make attempts on his life. North by Northwest is numbered among the essential Hitchcock pictures. The movie will begin at 1:00 PM and light snacks will be served.
