The Dover Town Library welcomed nearly 50 children on Wednesday, June 28, for an activity dubbed "Slime Time." Inside were a number of stations for creating different forms of slime. A matter of minutes after the activity opened its doors, the room was splattered with colors as children ran around with smiles on their faces.

There were many different slime concoctions at the event. The most popular one was a mixture of cloud dough, cornstarch liquid, and food coloring. All, however, seemed to excite the myriad children who'd come for the activity.

Children’s Librarian Nancy Tegeler, who set up the event for the community, was very excited to host the program, which seemed a perfect way for the children to come in from the summer heat and have fun being creative.

“I’ve never seen this many people,” librarian Allison Keaney reacted to the tremendous outcome. The large number of people was a great feeling for Keaney, who also proudly mentioned that these events have been encouraging children to make dents in their summer reading lists.

Aside from recognizing "Slime Time" as a great activity for kids, Rob Andrews, a local father, also noted that there’s always something to do at the Dover Town Library.

“The Librarians are so thoughtful for these activities,” he declared.
