All Geared Up

The Hillsdale Library continues its series of crowd-sourced, community driven, creative art installations. Hillsdale Institutions and organizations are invited to decorate a hand-crafted gear, made by our makers. The gears will be meshed together in motion from October 2016 through March 25, 2017 – NJ Makers Day.

We need volunteers to make the gears!

If you would like to create and contribute your own gear to the project, please contact Dave Franz to discuss the parameters for inclusion. The gear teeth have to be designed to mesh with the others.

PRESS THE BIG RED SHINY BUTTON to set the gears in motion!

Bottle Cap Mosaic Board 2016/2017

Rearrange the caps in the rubber band grid to make your own mosaic. Once you are done be sure to take a picture or have a staff member take it. Images will be posted in the gallery below. If you want to remain anonymous that’s cool, but let us know a little bit about yourself if you want recognition.

Bottle Cap Mosaic Board is a Think It, Make It, Share It activity. All TMS activities are intended to inspire creativity within the community.

KIDS FOR EARTH COMMUNITY GARDEN

Kids for Earth (K4E) would like to invite elementary school-aged children to join us at the K4E Community Garden at the Hillsdale Public Library. We will meet twice a week, on Thursday morning at 10:00 am and again on Sunday afternoons at 5:00 pm. Drop in whenever you can! Those joining us at the garden will be able to learn from the Kids for Earth leaders about gardening, plants, beneficial insects, and more. The children can also help with planting, weeding, and harvesting. This is a great way to get your kids to try new vegetables and herbs, too!

Kids for Earth is an organization dedicated to learning to live sustainably, and then taking action and adopting this sustainable lifestyle. We believe in the science and symptoms of climate change. We also believe in being part of the solution! Following Gandhi’s path, we choose to be the change that we wish to see in the larger society. The Kids for Earth Mission: To raise awareness to help adopt a lifestyle that incorporates today’s natural resource challenges. We teach children how to live sustainably in modern society.
