  • Fizz, Boom, Read...About Ice
    Offsite
    10:00 am to 12:00 pm Mediacom Ice Park for preschool-grade 5.
    Why is ice slippery? Gliding on thin metal blades across most solid surfaces (think your driveway in summer) would be impossible, so why does it work on ice? Physicists have lots of theories, but no solid answers. We’ll explore ice and other cold things with stories and activities at the Mediacom Ice Park. Afterwards, the Springfield-Greene County Park Board will open the ice rink to Storytime participants for an hour of free skating and skate rental. If you plan on skating, come prepared with mittens, hats and socks. And to learn more about the physics of ice and skating, bring your library card and visit the Mobile Library, parked outside the Ice Park. Co-sponsored by the Springfield-Greene County Park Board.
