Marion Baysinger Memorial County Library News

Education, Fun, Safety and More!
Pam Goodson

Play and Learn with Science Apps on iPads
Children have enjoyed playing with Science Apps on iPads at the library on Tuesday mornings at 11:00 a.m. The iPads were purchased last year with a grant from the Community Foundation of South Lake County. Children have explored Bill Nye the Science Guy’s Lab, been tested with DK Quiz, scientifically challenged on BrainPOP, and they fed a chameleon science vocabulary with Word Fly from Pearson Language Central. Come and join the fun in July on the 8th, 15th, and 22nd at 11:00 a.m. No registration necessary.
