Explore Space with the Library this Summer

Have you ventured to the Library Center yet to Explore Space? That’s the new exhibit sure to appeal to space- and science-loving kids, teens and adults. We’re pairing it with space-themed programs throughout the summer.

The Library was awarded the traveling exhibit through Aug. 4 by the National Center for Interactive Learning at the Space Science Institute.  

 “Space exploration and research help us answer the age-old questions: ‘Where did we come from?’ and ‘Are we alone?’” says Youth Services Coordinator Nancee Dahms-Stinson. “The display and the variety of programs the Library has developed to support it, makes learning about space science and astronomy fun for all ages.”

Come see the exhibit, and visit for the full schedule of events. Upcoming:
