with Clark!

A public library is a universe of opportunity! This summer launch your imagination at Clark by participating in our programs, activities, and borrowing one of our thousands of stories! Programs include a talk on UFOs and extraterrestrial possibilities [Sat, July 13 @ 2 pm] or exploring the transition of life on our planet with the Peabody Museum [Weds, July 10 @ 2 pm]. Activities allow elementary age kids to build their own spacescape of alien life forms, rockets, and land formations, and then to digitally publish their story through the library! Teens and adults, you could win a telescope by making book recommendations on our community bulletin board. Read below to discover all the ways Clark will help you have a stellar summer. You can download it as well!

Summering at Clark 2019


Create Your Spacescape!

Imagine your planet, rocket ship, or alien lifeform and then make it! Make your own Spacescape! You may work on it every day the library is open June 18 through Aug 10! {Tues, Weds, Thurs, Sat, & Sun}

Imagine a new planet. What it would be like and who would live on it? What type of rocket ship or space vehicle do you dream of? We supply all the materials for you to create your dream planet, alien life forms, and spacecraft. You can build a little of it at a time and store your planet in progress at the library.

Also, we invite you to tell the story of your planet, aliens, or rockets using our e-publishing platform. You can upload audio files, photos or drawings, and typed stories. To begin publishing your story and artwork go to A Universe of Stories at Clark Memorial Library.

Mathmania: Numbers are the language of the Universe

 Rising 2nd through 6th graders can keep their head in the math game by joining our weekly club of math inspired activities and games. First meeting is Weds, June 26 at 3:30. Participants earn prizes! Snacks provided. Call to register at 203 393-2103.
