Adult Summer Programming Schedule:

June 25th @ 6pm - The Science of Weather-Eastern PA Weather Authority
Whether rain, or snow, or sleet, or hail, a meteorologist can be very handy.  LML is excited to host meteorologists, Mike DeFino and Bobby Martrich, from the Eastern PA Weather Authority (EPAWA) at 6:00pm on June 25th. Hear them speak about the process of forecasting high impact events, such as severe thunderstorms, winter storms, flooding situations. All are welcome.  For more information contact Lower Macungie Library at 610-966-6864 or visit our website at www.lowermaclib.org.  Registration required.

July 2nd @ 6pm - The Science of Canning & Preservation
Have you always wanted to preserve fresh summer fruit as homemade jelly or jam?  Do you have a burning desire to turn your crisp cucumbers into pickles?  If so, join LML in welcoming culinary expert, Beth Streeter, who will present on the delicious subject of canning and preservation.  The presentation will include a short demonstration.  Learn this classic culinary art and keep your pantry stocked throughout the year!

July 9th @ 6pm - The Science of Gardening

LML will be hosting Wendy Gloffke, a Master Gardener from the Penn State Extension.  Gloffke will present on the easy ways to integrate fruit, nut, and vegetable production ornamentals.  Wendy Gloffke has been a Master Gardener for more than a decade, but you’d never know it by her garden. Despite her years of gardening experience, she is constantly outwitted by the clay, rock, weather, and critters of northeast Pennsylvania. To support her addiction to all things garden, she works as a freelance medical writer.  Join us and turn your garden in a beautiful and edible masterpiece!  All are welcome.  For more information contact Lower Macungie Library at 610-966-6864 or visit our website at www.lowermaclib.org.  Registration required.
