Patch has put together some things you need to know for Monday.
This is the time of the summer when parents hear this phrase from their kids more than any other: "I'm bored!" Answer the wee ones' cry with this: Get ready for Monday Night Fun at the South Orange Public Library. The Friends of the Library feature a wide range of performers sure to surprise and delight. The night runs from 7-8 p.m. at the South Orange Library at 65 Scotland Road, and admission is free.
Keep the kids occupied all week long with the Cool Rockets & Science Summer Campat the Baird Community Center, 5 Mead St. The fun-filled one-week course lets children age six through 11 explore the science of flight and related topics. Students will participate in experiments involving gyroscopes, hand boilers, air currents, light, water atomizers and plasma globes. And yes, they get to build stuff: unique paper airplanes and even their own model rocket. The camp, run by Montclair Public Schools math and science teacher Brad Turner, starts Monday, ends Friday and runs each day from 9 a.m.-1 p.m. For more info including cost, send email to email@example.com.
