This week is National Volunteers week, and the Friends of the Goodnow Library would like to thank our dedicated board and all of our wonderful volunteers who contribute so much to the success of the Friends. We greatly appreciate the countless hours you spend doing a variety of tasks --- from planning and running programs and fundraisers, soliciting memberships, working in the entry gardens, managing social media, organizing our summer movie series, editing our newsletter, creating publicity and collateral materials, and taking photographs. We could not do it all without the support and hard work of all of you. Thank you!!!
A gift for the gods. A symbol of wealth and luxury. An economic livelihood.
For thousands of years, humans have been fascinated with the delicious phenomenon that we call "chocolate." Today, most of us know it as a candy or a sweet dessert. But this wasn't always so. Visit the Museum of Science to test your chocolate knowledge and discover the complete story behind the tasty treat. Uncover facets of this sumptuous sweet that you've never thought about before! This exhibit runs from January 29-May 7, 2017.

Dig, climb, build (and tear down!) in the Boston Children's Museum's Construction Zone! Ride a real Bobcat, operate the jackhammer and deploy a team of trucks on your own construction site. Construction Zone is a kid-sized world inspired by the building projects that surround us every day. Ramps, tunnels, and bridges give children the tools to imagine a city in transition. And a wide variety of block and construction toys throughout the exhibit give grown-ups a chance to create, build and explore alongside their children. This is an ongoing exhibit.
