Today for After School Club we made catapults. First, we tried knocking over a stack of cups with marshmallows. Then we turned the cups over and put points on the cups and tried to get the marshmallows into the cup. We had a blast!
Join us October 29 to learn about the Day of the Dead and to make a calaca (skull).

As part of the festivities, we conducted a community-wide scavenger hunt. Patrons spread out into the four local communities – Northfield Center, Macedonia, Sagamore Hills, and Northfield Village – to locate the ten places listed in the riddles they were given.
Our successful and clever winners were the Tedor family, who solved the clues and found all ten landmarks.
Congratulations on a search well done – something we at the library can always appreciate!
