Incoming Eggbeater

Keep your eyes on the sky at 1:00 tomorrow afternoon. You may get to see the giant eggbeater land. Don't know what a giant eggbeater is? Well, it is sometimes called a whirligig, a rotorcraft, or a chopper. In this case, it is a medevac helicopter that is scheduled to land in the back parking lot at Holy Family Medical Center during the Family Fun Fest. In addition to touring the helicopter, many other free activities will be available from 10 am until 2 pm on Saturday, Oct. 2.

Of course, the library has lots of great books to help you find out more about helicopters. For the youngest readers, try Rescue Helicopters (Machines at Work series).

For children ready for chapter books, check out Choppers! by Susan Goodman.

Helicopters (The Story of Flight series) includes fascinating pictures and information about many types of helicopters.

Since you never know when you might be called upon to save the day, just like James Bond or Alex Rider, brush up on flying a helicopter with The Boy's Book: How to Be the Best at Everything.

Have a great time at the Family Fun Fest, and let us know what you learned about helicopters!
