The Needham Free Public Library will present "Stephen Lechner and his Cabinet of Scientific Curiosities" on Wednesday, Aug. 22 at 3 p.m., in the Community Room.
In introducing us to his unusual “Cabinet of Curiosities,” (which mysteriously appeared on his doorstep one day with a note: “Please look after this cabinet, it is filled with all the dreams and inventions I have been working on since I was a baby”), Lechner starts us on a magical, mystical journey. As he begins to open the doors in the cabinet, each one reveals an object or experiment that imparts a science lesson. “Mysteries” in the box include such items as the Mysterious Bouncing Ball, the Laughing Cup, the Color-Changing Mystery, the Magical-Appearing Snow, the Dancing Monkeys, the Traveling Sand Bugs, the Anti-Gravity Spray, and more. With a lot of audience participation and funny business as each mystery is revealed, this program is a perfect way to end our summer reading clubs.
This Summer 2012 Dream Big, READ! Program is sponsored by the Friends of the Needham Public Library.
