Library activities range from ‘speed friending’ to STEAM in March

MADISON – Feeling a bit bored while waiting for spring to arrive? Break those seasonal blues with a trip to Madison Public Library.

Engineering will be March’s topic for “Homeschool STEAM” or ‘Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Mathematics.’ On March 13 from 1-2 p.m., homeschool students can engage in hands-on learning about ways that engineers solve design problems.

The session includes a ping-pong pickup challenge. RSVP at calendly.com/madisonstudio/homschool-steam-rsvp. For more information, email nbahr@hmcpl.org.

A craft for adults, “Shrink Wrap” involves a colored drawing on special plastic that contracts and thickens when heated. The activity on March 14 from 3-5 p.m. requires registration; visit calendly.com/madisonstudio/adult-craft-march. For information, email nbahr@hmcpl.org.

A hilarious farce with British undertones, “The World’s End” will air as “MAD Movie-A-Thon-O-Rama” on March 14 from 6-7:45 p.m. in Auditorium 1. Comedic actor Simon Pegg portrays Gary King, who reunites childhood buddies to conquer The Golden Mile, an epic pub crawl.

However, King’s posse must sidestep the apocalypse in their hometown, Newton Haven, to finish The Golden Mile. The library audience will experience ODORAMA!, a gimmick from a scratch-and-sniff map for each pub in The Golden Mile. The movie contains adult themes (language, humor and situations) and sci-fi violence and is recommended for 19-year-olds and older.

The auditorium opens at 6 p.m. for the movie at 6:30 p.m. The audience can bring snacks for the film.

Ever heard of “Speed Friending?” Discover this approach to find new friends. On March 16 from 12:30-2 p.m., adults can meet someone to talk about a favorite book.

For speed friending, bring a new book, one you’ve wanted to read or your last selection. Participants will have five minutes each to chat with each new friend. This program is for adults only. Refreshments will be provided.

“Women’s History Month: American Women’s Fashion with the DAR” on March 16 from 3-4 p.m. will allow guests to trace American women’s fashion from 1760-1925. Daughters of the American Revolution are providing samples of their museum’s collection.
