The Library’s first Science Fair on Feb. 28 was a great success! Twenty two young scientists from Grades 3 to 8 exhibited their research and it was all pretty impressive. We saw the effects of propeller angle on airplane thrust, a balloon rocket experiment, learned how solar cells produce power and much more!
On March 3, Grade 1 and 2 students from Lord Elgin Public School visited the Library to hear about the Lake Ontario Bring Back the Salmon initiative. Chris Robinson of the Ontario Federation of Anglers and Hunters talked with them about the Bring Back the Salmon project and then they watched as he released the salmon fry from their “condo” into the tank. They were so excited to be a part of this process.
What is an InterLibrary Loan? It's borrowing a book from another library! If you are interested in an item that our Library does not own, we can try to borrow that item from another Ontario library on your behalf.
