Franklin Institute: Eye to the Sky (K-12)
Wednesday, July 30th, 7 p.m. (No evening science program on July 23rd)
Join us for "out of this world" science as we explore astronomy. We will learn how our eyes operate like telescopes, explore the electro-magnetic spectrum, and find out how small the wavelength of visible light really is. We'll finish by taking a closer look at celestial objects we can see, such as the sun, the moon, and the stars. This program was made possible through generous donations to the library from Waste Management and First Priority Bank through the Pennsylvania Educational Improvement Tax Credit Program (EITC).

MP3-CD technology is here!
Easttown Library's collection of audiobooks on MP3-CD is growing! MP3-CD technology compresses 10 regular CD discs onto ONE MP3-CD disc, so there is little to no disc changing. Many cars built since 2008 have MP3 capability built in, making this an ideal format for travel listening. Best of all, there is no rental charge for the MP3-CD audiobooks! Come and browse our selection in the audiobook section.
