Explore Earth @ Crandall June 2nd Kick off.

Kick off on June 2nd 10am-2pm For All Ages.

Glens Falls — Explore Earth: Our Changing Planet, a national traveling exhibition exploring a global view of our changing environment, will be on display at Crandall Public Library from June 2 to July 29, 2018.

Getting people interested in science can be a challenge, but Explore Earth: Our Changing Planet strives to make it fun with a focus on local earth science topics — such as weather, the water cycle and ecosystem changes — as well as a global view of our changing planet.

Crandall Public Library will also offer a related series of public events to bring STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) programming to children, teens and adults.

“We are proud that Crandall Library was selected to be one of fourteen sites nationwide to host the Explore Earth exhibit,” said Pam Frazier Head of Children’s Services “We think people of all ages and backgrounds will find that the exhibition explores earth science in a way that is understandable, fulfilling, captivating and relevant.”

Crandall Public Library is located at 251 Glen Street. The exhibition is free and open to the public during library hours.

The exhibition will be accompanied by a series of programs and events for all ages, from The Impact of Climate Change on Human Health with Dr. Jay Lemery to Nitty Gritty Planet Earth with the Dirtmeister. For a full schedule of events, visit www. Crandalllibrary.org or call 518-792-6508.

Explore Earth: Our Changing Planet was organized by Space Science Institute’s National Center for Interactive Learning, the American Library Association Public Programs Office, the Lunar and Planetary Institute and the Afterschool Alliance. This project was made possible through the support of a grant from the National Science Foundation.

The other Hello World

One of my favorite (and free) tech magazines just published their May 2018 edition.

Join us as we celebrate the Year of Engineering in Hello World #5. We’ve brought together a wide range of experts to share ideas, thoughts and advice on how to bring engineering to the classroom, and ways to inspire the next generation…

Also in this issue:

  • The bluffers’ guide to putting together a tech-themed school trip
  • Inclusion, and coding for the visually impaired
  • Getting students interested in databases
  • Why copying may not always be a bad thing
  • And much more…


The New York State Library has purchased access to the MyOn collection of over 6,000 interactive children's ebooks for all NYS residents for the summer months (May-Sept 2018).

I recommend taking some time and looking the site over. You might find some real gems. I found some of the reading for picture books to be a little boring but then I stumbled up Genre>Science Fiction> Buzz Beaker vs Dracula: A Buzz Beaker Brainstorm and there was music and different voices for each character. It is done very well! There is an entire genre on scary stories.

Combing chocolate, peanut butter, caramel, marshmallow cream, and strawberry. I've created a new Flavor! Choco-butter-cara-mellow-berry! The ultimate late night snack. I love Science!
