Today is Dash’s day for a reading session – reading sessions are 15 minutes and suitable for children ages 4 and up. Please call the children’s department to reserve your preferred date and time. 781.741.1405 x1403

Today’s Hingham Public Library Saturday Science…Beyond Einstein topic is Chemistry and the featured scientist is Dorothy Hodgkin. Today’s special activity is experimenting with baking soda and with assorted candies in cola soda. The Saturday in Science…Beyond Einstein program is the brainchild of two Hingham moms with a goal of introducing kids to science with an emphasis on women and minority contributors. There will be a brief introduction to the “featured” scientist beginning at 9:30 a.m. followed by hands on craft or activity. This program is perfect for children ages K -3. Reservations are necessary for materials planning and are class specific and a parent/guardian must remain in the children’s department while the child participates in the program. You can register by calling 781.741.1405 x 1403 or sending an email to hijuv@ocln.org.
