Radical Fun Project: More Stop Motion Animation!


Stop Motion is a magic filming technique that makes inanimate objects look like they are moving all by themselves. All it takes is a simple iPad app and some playdough to make a Stop Motion masterpiece.

Kids at this month's Radical Fun program got creative with playdough and other materials in order to make their own Stop motion animation videos. It's so simple you can even make your own stop motion videos at home! If you've miss out on our previous Stop Motion blog post, click here for instructions on how to create your own Stop Motion animation. 

Check out some of the awesome Stop Motion videos our Radical Fun kids made on November 9th and November 17th!


Cast Your Vote!

Vote for your favorite book!Election Day is less than a week away! While you do have to be 18 to be eligible to vote for one of the United States presidential candidates and submit an official ballot on November 8 – there are a number of fun ways to involve kids in the election process. Tops on the list is stopping into the children’s section of the Main Library and picking up a ballot for “President of the Library.” We have two candidates: Pigeon – as in Don’t Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus, by Mo Willems. And Pete the Cat – as in Pete the Cat and his Four Groovy Buttons by Eric Litwin.
