Learn About Citizen Science

Citizen Science is a way for regular people to participate in real science that needs our help! The library now has three Citizen Science Kits available for checkout as part of our Library of Things.

Drop in between 2:00 and 3:30 on Saturday, June 18th, to see the kits for yourself and learn how you can participate in real scientific research! These kits are designed for adults or for children with help from an adult – they make an ideal family or multigenerational activity.
