NCompass Live: Under the Microscope: Science at the Library

Join us for next week’s NCompass Live, ‘Under the Microscope: Science at the Library’, on Wednesday, Dec. 21, 10:00-11:00 am Central Time.

Valley Public Library was awarded one of the Nebraska Library Commission Youth Grants for Excellence for two microscope kits that would be made available for circulation and would be used in programming for youth and families. The presentation will include background information on our science station that led to the idea for the kits. Descriptions of projects and programs that have been successful will be presented along with potential for future programming and outreach.

Presenters: Claire Bushong, Director, and Gary Brown, Volunteer, Valley (NE) Public Library.
