ake a walk downtown between the Manhattan Public Library and the Blue Earth Plaza to find the features in our Downtown Manhattan Art and Architecture Scavenger Hunt. We have taken photos of some old and new unique aspects of our beautiful downtown community. Notice the details and different features of each building. What's old, what's new?
Stop by the library atrium to pick up the scavenger hunt or download one using the link below. Write the address (or approximate location) under the corresponding photo. Fill it out and bring it back into the library for a small prize. As a fun addition, take a selfie in front of your favorite feature and post it! Tag us on social media!

This family-friendly event will include creating a delicious mocktail with a surprising fizzy element. Then we will dive right into some spooky STEM! Families will be creating a “Matter Monster” and a “Glove Ghost” as we explore the difference between an exothermic and endothermic reaction. These experiments can get a little messy, so be sure to cover your work surface for the event!
Registration price of $75 includes an experiment kit for ONE person to complete a Matter Monster and Ghost Glove, a special spooky drink, and a live Zoom step-by-step experiment with Dr. Evan Esquire from Science Explorers and Sunflower CASA. One-third of the registration is for the experiment kit, and the rest is a tax-deductible donation to Sunflower CASA. Additional Matter Monster kits can be purchased for an additional $25. Please order all kits when registering to ensure you will have what you need for the event.

October 30, 2020, 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM @ Aggieville
The #BikeWalkMHK community will meet up at The Public Hall starting at 6:00pm for the Books + Bikes event. The Books + Bikes event invites members of the community to converse and imagine what is required to grow a bike-walk culture in MHK. This is an informal meet and greet event. No reading is required to participate.
At 7:30, a walking group will start off on a walking route through Aggievillle, City Park, and surrounding neighborhoods. Cyclists will convene along Moro Street and ride a 1-mile Loop moving south towards 4th street, Right on Poyntz, and around City Park into Aggieville.
Following the ride, we will meet informally over pizza to identify key issues facing the #BikeWalkMHK community in Manhattan and hear about progress made on bicycle-walk campaigns. The point of this ride is to increase the visibility of cycling and walking as a mode of active transportation, healthy living, and recreation - so we'll be riding at a pace that is comfortable for all! All ages welcome!
