STEAM STARS Summer Reading Program!

Wonderful, Fun Summer Activities at Doyle Library, Raymond
During recent STEAM STARS events held every Friday from 11-12 noon at Doyle Library, our children created Tranquility Aquariums from old water bottles, shells, craft foam and glitter, shark puppets, super loop-de-loop airplanes, growing pumpkins from seeds, and hatching real butterfly painted ladies from caterpillars and studying how caterpillars grow into butterflies!

Upcoming Events
During our upcoming events, Doyle Library will be awarding tickets for Knights Action Park!  Be sure to attend our upcoming STEAM STARS Events on Fridays, from 11-12, in July!

Cloud or Fog?  Weather Conditions and Science
On July 20th, from 11 am to 12 noon, Doyle Library will be hosting Cloud or Fog?  Weather Conditions and Science.  We will be studying the many factors that come into play to formulate our weather and how the planets influence our world.  We will also be creating beautiful wind chimes for each STEAM STAR to take home.

The Popcorn Astronauts
Doyle Library will be hosting the Montgomery County Literacy Program, “Ag in the Classroom” on Friday, July 27, from 11 am - 12 noon.
In this year’s program, Library STEAM STARS will enjoy a tasty treat of perfectly seasoned poems, by reading The Popcorn Astronauts.  Find out how many of the foods mentioned in the poems are specialty crops grown here in Illinois!
Library STEAM STARS will also learn about Illinois’s Official Snack:  Popcorn!  Each STEAM STAR will check out corn popping in slow motion and pop some corn to make a popcorn rocket picture to take home!
