UK - Children's Summer Reading Finale: Pop-Up Planetarium

Children's Summer Reading Finale: Pop-Up Planetarium & Ice Cream Party

Saturday, August 10th



Join us for a special Summer Reading finale with a visit from our local NASA Ambassador, Elizabeth Garcia & the StarLab Pop-Up Planetarium! Children and parents will be invited to experience the magic of the cosmos, & learn about space from a trained NASA professional. There will also be an ice-cream party and certificate ceremony to celebrate summer reading.

Getting people interested in science can be a challenge, but this program will be a great opportunity for our community to celebrate science with this fun, hands-on activity.

The Ukiah branch of the Mendocino County Library has joined more than 16,000 libraries across the country to participate in the summer learning program, A Universe of Stories. The Collaborative Summer Library Program (CSLP), the STAR Library Network (STAR Net) with its NASA@ My Library program, and NASA have created a virtual launch pad filled with many STEM resources and activities to help inspire children of all ages to dream big, believe in themselves, and create their own story. This summer learning program coincides with NASA’s 60 years of achievement and its celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Apollo Moon Landing. 

Sponsored by the Ukiah Valley Friends of the Library and the Ukiah Latitude Observatory.
