Science Heroes draw a crowd

Over 80 children and adults attended Thursday night’s summer reading presentation by Mad Science of New England. The crowd was enchanted by all the clever tricks and snappy dialog, and the “hoverboard” was totally cool. This program was made possible by generous support of our Friends of NAPL and is part of the greater summer theme “Every Hero has a Story.” Thanks also to Kim and Nancy for working so hard to schedule a summer of fun.
