Some of the Perryville library's younger patrons were so eager to learn about hydrogeology they could taste it.
With guidance from Vicki Stone of the University of Maryland Extension's 4-H program, children created "edible aquifers" last Wednesday morning.
The activity was part of "The Library Rocks" summer reading program sponsored by the Cecil County Public Library.

It may just look like a fun geyser made from Mentos and Diet Coke, but for Liz Drummond, it was a chemistry lesson.
Drummond, the young adult librarian at Perryville's Branch Library, was teaching about soda geysers and various types of bubbles as part of last week's Afternoon Academy classes at the library. Afternoon Academy is new at Perryville and is specifically for those who are home schooled or who attend school in a non-traditional setting.
