Flying the library’s friendly skies

If you’ve ever had to answer a question from a curious child about how a pilot steers a plane and what makes a plane fly, a chance to get those questions answered takes place tomorrow.

But even more fun for children ages 6-9 would be taking a 3-minute test flight in a flight simulator, part of a “Jet Age Workshop” the Museum of Flight is presenting at the Mill Creek Library tomorrow, Saturday, Sept. 16. In addition, children can make paper airplanes and paper airplane races will take place.

Three sessions are available, at 1, 2 and 3 p.m. Registration for each session is required, and tickets can be picked up at the Mill Creek Library, 15429 Bothell-Everett Highway.

The program is funded by the Friends of the Mill Creek Library. For more information, call 425-337-4822 or 425-743-5544.

Book chat

The Mill Creek Book Discussion group will talk about “Founding Mothers” by Cokie Roberts at 7 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 21 at the Mill Creek Library, 15429 Bothell-Everett Highway.

The book includes stories of women who influenced the Founding Fathers. Discussion facilitator will be Michelle Buerk.

Participants also will start the process of suggesting and choosing books to be discussed next year.
