April is Global Citizen Science Month! If you are looking for ways to involve your community in your library activities, Citizen Science is a great way to do it. Patrons of all ages can participate in collecting and analyzing data, engaging in real research to advance science. Projects include monitoring light pollution, investigating the safety of drinking water, observing plants and animals in your area, Alzheimer’s research, and much more. Free resources abound to help you plan programs, access materials, learn about projects, and more!
