Rye S.T.E.A.M. ROLLERS Grades 3-4
Rye Free Reading Room, Saturday, May 27 at 5pm
All Ryebrary S.T.E.A.M. ROLLERS in grades 3 & 4 are invited to join the librarians once-a-month in our "New S.T.E.A.M. LAB" where Literacy meets science. Each month we will read a book together. Then taking inspiration from the story, we will teach kids how to think with their hands and minds. It's Inquiry-based learning combined with a hands-on-activity in the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, or Math. Literacy Meets Science!
May's book is Rosie Revere,Engineer by Andrea Beaty. The S.T.E.A.M. activity will be building an airplane. *Children do not have to pre-read the book.
Rosie may seem quiet during the day, but at night she's a brilliant inventor of gizmos and gadgets who dreams of becoming a great engineer. When her great-great aunt Rose(Rosie the Riveter) comes for a visit and mentions her one unfinished goal - to fly- Rosie sets to work building a contraption to make her aunt's dream come true. But when her contraption doesn't fly but rather hovers for a moment and then crashes, Rosie deems the invention a failure. Aunt Rose insists that Rosie's contraption was a raging success: you can only truly fail, she explains, if you quit.

"Urban Shocker" with author Steve Steinberg
Bergino Baseball Clubhouse, Thursday, June 1 at 7pm
Baseball in the 1920’s is most known for Babe Ruth and the New York Yankees, but there was another great Yankees player in that era whose compelling story remains untold.

Urban Shocker was a fiercely competitive and colorful pitcher. With the 1927 Yankees, widely viewed to be the best team in Major League Baseball history, Shocker pitched with guts and guile, finishing with a record of 18‑6 even while his fastball and physical skills were deserting him. Hardly anyone knew that Shocker was suffering from incurable heart disease that left him able to sleep only while sitting up and which would take his life in less than a year.

Delving into his baseball career, his love of the game, and his battle with health issues, Steinberg shows the dominant and courageous force of Urban Shocker.

Join Steve Steinberg for our intimate Clubhouse conversation on Thursday, June 1.

RSVP required to attend.

Autographed and personalized copies of “Urban Shocker” will be available for purchase. The author will sign only books purchased in the Clubhouse.

Steve Steinberg is a baseball historian and coauthor with Lyle Spatz of “The Colonel and Hug: The Partnership that Transformed the New York Yankees,” and “1921: The Yankees, the Giants, and the Battle for Baseball Supremacy in New York.” (Clubhouse)
