Enlightening and Inspiring Generations with Generations of Ideas

I can think of few more worthy achievements than keeping a library alive and well for a century.  As far as I am concerned, one of the absolute  backbones of a free society and a democracy is the library offering access to a treasure house of information to all.

Jul 13 2017 - 6:00pm

Join us in this exciting Family Night when hands-on science modeling helps to explain the upcoming Total Solar Eclipse. What cause the solar eclipse? How does geography play a part in what can be observed? When is viewing a solar eclipse dangerous? 

Using hands-on science with UV sensitive beads, see for yourself just how fast our sun's energy can change us, This fun and informative program is best for families with kids ages 6 years and up, but everyone is welcome. Note: We will be working with small beads, which may pose a safety hazard to young children. This program is free and open to the public. Children under the age or 8 must be accompained by a responsible adult.
