Youth Services and NASA@MyLibrary

Apr 16, 2019

Visiting the UW Planetarium.

Wyoming Youth Services librarians gathered in Laramie on March 28-29 for their annual spring meeting and to participate in a one-and-a-half day NASA@MyLibrary workshop. The workshop, sponsored by the Wyoming State Library, provided training in hands-on activities related to space. Wyoming librarians learned about space and how we explore it, health in space, and even got to visit the Planetarium at the University of Wyoming and look through the telescope. All of this learning was accompanied by activities such as a “Jump to Jupiter,” “Let’s Make a Supernova,” “Strange New Planet,” and more. They can now share these activities with their patrons. The workshop ties in nicely with this year’s summer reading program theme, “A Universe of Stories.”

Participants in the workshop also learned about the STAR Library Network (STAR Net) where they can find more activities and information to share in their programs.
