We are pleased to announce that The St. Johns County Public Library System (SJCPLS) has been selected as one of 75 public libraries nationwide to take part in the NASA@ My Library program. Throughout the year, we will be providing programs and sponsored resources that will blast you off into a world of fun and learning.
For the first phase of this program we have received a NASA@ My Library Kit that includes an infrared thermometer, sunoculars for viewing the Sun, UV flashlights, and a Galaxy Tab S2 tablet for making fun space-related images and videos. We will also be connected to a network of STEM (science, technology, engineering, math) professionals through the NASA@ My Library program.
In March of 2018, we will offer a backpack full of goodies for our patrons to check out and be able to explore the world on their own. SJCPLS is pleased to add these invaluable resources to its already impressive lineup of STEM programming and resources.
Stay tuned as more programs are added throughout the year — it’s going to be an out-of-this-world experience with NASA@ My Library.
The NASA@ My Library project is led by the National Center for Interactive Learning at the Space Science Institute. Partners include the American Library Association (ALA) Public Programs Office, Pacific Science Center, Cornerstones of Science, and Education Development Center. NASA@ My Library is made possible through the support of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) Science Mission Directorate as part of its STEM Activation program.
