The Science of Rainbows for St. Patrick's Day


On March 17th, local children came to Doyle Public Library to participate in STEAM Stars Story Hour. They heard fun stories, did cool crafts, and had a colorful snack. The theme this month was Rainbows, and the stories that were read focused on how a rainbow is formed, what colors are in a rainbow, and all about leprechauns too! 

Many of the children that attended were dressed in green for St. Patrick’s Day, which only added to the festive spirit. A fun time was had by all who attended and everyone got a free book and a fun prize to take home!
             
Doyle Library holds STEAM Stars Story Hour from 11:00am to noon on the third Saturday of the month. During the months of June and July, the Summer Reading Program will be held every Friday from 11:00am to noon.
Children will learn about different topics, such as weather, the ocean, gravity, insects, and lots more fun, educational subjects! Along with the lesson, there is always a fun craft/activity and a yummy snack!
           
April STEAM Stars Story Hour will be a special one—it is all about moms and how special they are! Children will read fun stories about moms, have a snack, and make a thoughtful Mother’s Day gift for their moms.
If you want your children to make something special for their Mom, bring them to April STEAM Stars Story Hour on April 21st at 11:00am!

Learning How Animals Stay Warm in Winter!

Tori Bloome reads to the children during Saturday's STEAM Stars.

Children have fun emulating animals during STEAM Stars Story Hour.

Lauren Bails provides hands-on opportunities for the children to directly experience how animals stay warm during the winter.

After the hands-on activities, children then made cute marshmallow bears with chocolate chips and peanut butter!  Yum!
