About the event

Potato chips, penicillin, and Post-it notes? what do these have in common? They were all invented by mistake! Learn with us about how some of history's failures became great successes.

This year, the library is focusing on resilience which is the ability to recover from difficulties. Do you ever feel like you just can’t get anything right? Join us as we look at how failure can still lead to learning and success! Potato chips, penicillin, Post-it notes, and more were all discovered through a series of mistakes and mess-ups. Let’s learn about how past inventors turned history’s failures into our successes!
