Syracuse Public Library announces upcoming events:
At 5 p.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 10, the Children’s Book Club is reading books about ice cream and how to make ice cream. The group is making their own ice cream and finishing it with yummy toppings. The librarians can’t wait to eat ice cream and hope many children share in the fun.
At 5 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 20, pizza and games are in store for all the readers who took up the librarian’s challenge to read books from the “Dear America” series during the summer. Please call the children’s department to register. For a free diary answer this question, “In which book does Betty Sato make an origami crane to give to the wounded soldier, John?”
At 2 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 26, a program for home schooled children and their parents will be offered. The program will provide opportunities to meet other home school families and help each other, talk about how the library can be of service and exchange information while the children read, play and have a snack with the librarian.
The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks
The Syracuse Library will host it’s monthly discussion group at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 11. The group is talking about the nonfiction title, The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks. Lacks body produced cells that replicate without changing which has allowed them to be reused in many experiments. The HeLa cells that are growingin laboratories around the world are unique but the method of collecting the original sample was anything but unique. An open invitation is extended to anyone interested in a friendly discussion based on topics that the book presents. Decaf coffee will be served.
The library may be contacted by calling 574-457-3022.
