The Kids Corner Bookmobile

In late 2020 we lost a member of the Kids Corner family - librarian Joe Hilton. For over thirty years, Joe visited with us monthly to share his love of reading with generations of kids (and adults!). In celebration of Joe's life and legacy, here are just a few of the hundreds of books Joe suggested we 'check out' and enjoy! (refresh for more selections)

Kids Corner Science Fair

Due to CoVid-19 protective measures, spring science fairs across the Kids Corner community have either been cancelled or postponed. Since learning everyday is vital, we decided to launch the first ever Kids Corner Science Fair

The way it works is simple: While staying at home, you can create your very own science fair project using items you have around the house. If you're looking for project ideas, visit Dr. Lisa Chirlian's list of Kitchen Chemistry projects and experiments to see if one is right for you!

Once you have your project chosen and have tested out the results, have someone in your household video you presenting your science fair project to the world. Then have them upload the video to a video site of their choice (YouTube, Vimeo or Facebook offer free video hosting) and simply copy the video URL and paste in the proper line on the entry form below. 

The Kids Corner Science Fair is open to kids 17 and younger. Video presentations must be ten minutes or less in length. All qualified science fair project videos will be included in the Kids Corner Science Fair section on our website - which will make its debut later this spring!
