Come explore the universe with us

At the very base of every library is the desire to encourage people to read and learn new things, which is exactly what the Elkhart Public Library wants to do, only we want to focus that a bit more this year.

As a part of the NASA @ My Library program, the EPL has agreed to focus programming on science, technology engineering and math (STEM), more specifically on space exploration and science education.

But this is only the beginning.

“It is our hope that children and families exposed to scientific ideas in a library even will want to learn more,” says Allison McLean, director of Young People’s Services. “We want kids to see their potential as scientists and to learn about the career opportunities NASA has to offer.”

The library’s goal is to help build excitement about the work that NASA is doing, as well as raising awareness of all of the different ways the library can help with science education.

“Most of all,” McLean says, “we just want to share the joy of learning more about the world around us.”
