Voorheesville Library Notes for Wednesday, August 14, 2019

Join magician and juggler Scott Jameson, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m., on Tuesday, Aug. 20, at the Voorheesville Public Library for an extraordinary performance.

Umbrellas will be plucked from thin air, a drawing will come to life, basketballs will be spun and juggled, and the audience will travel through time. Top readers and grand-prize winners of the Summer Reading Program will be announced and prizes awarded.

People of all ages are welcome. No registration is required.

Kindergarten readiness

Children entering kindergarten, and their parents, are invited to join us on Wednesday, Aug. 21, at 6:30 p.m., for a fun-filled and educational evening where the soon-to-be-kindergarteners can hone their kindergarten-readiness skills at activity/learning centers. Let’s celebrate this important and exciting milestone! Please register.

Oreo Challenge

Do you have what it — tastes? Join us on Thursday, Aug. 22, at 6:30 p.m. for an hour-long taste test.

You will participate in a blind taste test challenge by sampling a variety of Oreo cookie flavors, then vie for the coveted title of “Oreo Cookie Flavor Champ” by guessing what the flavors are. The one who gets the most answers correct wins! We will also rate the seasonal offerings to declare a “Best in Show.”

For a proper “cleansing of the palette” between tastes, milk and water will be supplied. Please register.
