Where Kids and Grown-up Have Fun with Science and Technology
Learning more about the science and study of celestial objects, space, and the physical universe is even easier to do at the Puyallup Public Library. The children’s librarians are now members of NASA’s Space Place community. As members, the librarians receive a small display about various space topics once every three to four months. This display is put up in the children’s non-fiction area at the end of a shelf (only a few steps from J 520, the Dewey Decimal Number for astronomy!).
A new display about infrared radiation and the Herschel Space Observatory just went up. This display is packed full of information and pictures. The display that just went down was about the art and beauty of space photography. I invite you to come take a look at this new display in the children’s area of the library.
To learn more about space and astronomy I encourage you to take a look at the Space Place website at SpacePlace.NASA.gov. This website is full of activities and information for children as well as parents. Explore fun facts, games, puzzles, coloring sheets, videos, photos, and so much more. Then, don’t forget to check out some books or videos on the topic. Your library has plenty for you to look at about our solar system and beyond. You will be seeing stars in your eyes!
