Butler residents invited to learn more about planet

October 31, 2017 by  

Throughout November and December, members of the public from Butler are invited to come to an event that will explore the entire planet without having to leave home to do it.

The Changing Planet exhibit will bring into focus both local environmental topics and ones that affect the entire world. Many of the exhibits have been planned and constructed to offer a hands-on style experience, and may be of interest to young and old alike.

In addition to the exhibition, the library will be hosting themed activities and workshops, with many of them built around the STEM (science, technology, engineering, math) subjects.

Offerings for all ages have been added to the institution’s calendar, ranging from sustainability, fracking, ways individuals, families and businesses can be kind to the planet and many others. Signage and other promotional products for an exhibit like this can be prepared by a printing company.

The event is coming to the library through the support of the STAR Library Education Network, part of the Space Science Institute’s National Center for Interactive Learning. Organizations partnering with the library to sponsor the event include the American Library Association, the Afterschool Alliance and the Lunar and Planetary Institute. It will run from October 25th until December 29th at the Zelienople Area Public Library.
