Enjoy the show over and over all summer long. Brought to you by your friends at the library.

Science Tellers
Dragons: Return of the Ice Sorceress

A long time ago, in a faraway land, two brave villagers go on a daring journey to release the dragons and save the kingdom from an evil Ice Sorceress. When things don’t go as planned, however, the kids might need to look to themselves — and to science! — for the answer.

Don’t miss this fun fantasy adventure featuring awesome dry ice experiments as special effects! Watch the show at https://vimeo.com/421330198/de94ac01b0.
