Downtown Manhattan is always hopping with activity. Today, Glittering Places of Detroit Concert is happening at the Roseville Public Library on Gratiot Avenue, Roseville starting at 6:30 p.m. You will be privy to a wonderful show about the critical role Detroit had in the development of Jazz. Performed by vocal artist Pam Jaslove, there is music, a slide show and so much more. It’s a great opportunity for the entire family to learn about the 1920s Jazz Age.
Two days from now the Chesterfield Township Library on Patricia Street is hosting a Marvels of Motion program between 2 and 2.45pm. Mad Science will present the event which will discuss Newton’s three laws of motion in action. This is set to be a real hands-on experience for the whole family, featuring competitions, physics education, sports and real experiments.
Next Tuesday at 6pm take the whole family and head back to Roseville Public Library for Up the Lazy River journey. Use your imagination and try to see yourself on Tashmoo – a sidewheel steamboat – going from Toledo, starting in Detroit. Take a trip back in time and look at the lighthouses that have disappeared over time as well as other attractions from the early 20th century that we can still see but have basically faded. Learn all about the SS Tashmoo.
