Celebrate the end of the Teen Summer Reading Program by stomping, jumping, and playing in a pool of oobleck! Youth ages 10-18 are invited to participate in this event on Saturday, August 12 at 11:00 a.m. at the Main Library. Learn about non-Newtonian fluids as you help mix the oobleck, then enjoy lawn activities and oobleck fun! If you’d like, stay for the all-ages ice cream social that follows the oobleck party, starting at 1:00 p.m. This will be a great opportunity to claim your summer reading prizes, enter the final raffle of the summer, and socialize with fellow readers!
Weather permitting, the oobleck party will be outside on the lawn. If the weather is bad, we will hold the party inside in the Community Room. Oobleck will wash out of clothing, but it doesn’t hurt to wear clothes you don’t mind getting a bit dirty. For more information, call Youth Services at 767-7660 x 3. This program is sponsored by the Friends of the South Portland Public Library.
