Bingham Creek Library is splashing into Summer Reading with Great Programs in June!

Join us on Monday, June 7 for Mad Science- Wacky Waves. Water does a lot more than wash your hands or quench your thirst. Take a Mad Science bath and shower. Observe the effect of centrifugal force water. Investigate water pressure and tension. Watch water mysteriously disappear and turn into a rainbow of colors. View light through water.

June 14 will be Beach Party Magic: Experience the magic of Hawaii with Anthony, the Big Kahuna. Use your imagination on this magical trip to the Hawaiian Islands. If you love summer, beaches and Hawaii, you’ll love this show. Help Anthony name his new friend (Bird Puppet). At the end of the summer there will be a drawing. The winning name will be the new name of Anthony’s friend, and the winner gets a FREE Magic Show.

On June 28 we will go on an adventure with the Utah Puppet Theater as they present The Treasure Chest: a Pirate Adventure! A young boy goes fishing and meets up with a pirate, a sea serpent, and a mermaid. Should he trust the pirate? Whatever could be inside the mysterious treasure chest? What is all that thumping, bumping and splashing? Should he open the chest or not? Preschool to elementary.

All programs are free and begin at 7:00pm in the Bingham Creek Library Auditorium.
