Special Kick-off event - Saturday, June 7 at 11 a.m.
This summer the Downtown Library is hosting the Discover Earth traveling exhibit. This museum quality exhibit is the sister to Discover Tech which the library hosted to record attendance in 2012. Like the Discover Tech exhibit, Discover Earth features hands-on learning on par with national science museums but without the admission fee.
Thanks to the Spokane Public Library Foundation (who paid for the exhibit to be shipped to the library), the Discover Earth exhibit will be on-site at Spokane Public Library through August 2014.
Magic Planet, One of the coolest parts of the exhibit, is an 18-inch globe that allows customers to explore stunning visualizations of the global earth system produced by NASA and NOAA research communities (e.g. earthquakes, plate tectonics, tsunamis, hurricanes, changing sea ice, and more). The exhibit pieces incorporate personal narratives, stunning graphics, video, animations, weather artifacts, animal specimens, and simulation-based educational games.
WHEN: June 7 to August 31
TIME: Open Library Hours
