Darby Library Microscopy Club
4:00 PM - 5:00 PM

   BIOLOGY: The Study of Living Organisms.      

In May of 2017, the Darby Free Library was one of only 75 libraries in America to be awarded the prestigious, NASA@MYLIBRARY Grant. Its purpose is to teach the disciplines of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math.) to our patrons.

As part of our grant, we initiated a Microscopy Laboratory to introduce and to investigate the vast field of biology and its many sub disciplines, like medicine, botany, and zoology, to our students and patrons.

Nothing beats "Hands On Experimenting and Learning." There is absolutely no substitute for observing scientific specimens live through the eyepiece of a microscope. It is far superior to looking at a dry picture in a textbook. The students are much more interested and learn more.

Our students are having so much fun that they don't even realize that they are learning. Our students can't wait to get their hands on the microscopes and view biologic specimens, and to go outside into our yard and pick their own specimens to observe. We teach them the fundamentals of the Life Sciences, across the biologic spectrum, and the science of light microscopy; that is, how to properly setup and use a light microscope. 

Some students have already evinced an interest in becoming medical researchers and physicians.

All are welcome to attend our exciting sessions, students and interested adults.

1,000 Books Before Kindergarten

1,000 BOOKS BEFORE KINDERGARTEN!

One of the most important things parents can do, beyond keeping kids healthy and safe, is to read with them. That means starting when they are newborns and not even able to talk, and continuing well beyond the years that they can read by themselves. Study after study shows that early reading with children helps them learn to speak, interact, bond with parents, and read early themselves. In addition, reading with kids who already know how to read helps them feel close to caretakers, understand the world around them, and be empathetic citizens of the world!

The Darby Free Library is pleased to present a program titled, " 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten." The goal is to read 1,000 books to your newborn, infant, and/or toddler before your child starts kindergarten.

Start by signing up at the Darby Free Library for a free book and supplies to help you to keep track.
And, yes, you can repeat books.

Read-Ercise w/ Toddlers

ENCORE PRESENTATION! Since this story time at 10:30am is so popular, Mr. Jason will be doing a second encore story time immediately after the first one. This way, the crowd won't be so big. So feel free to come to the 10:30am or the 11:30am story time for your toddlers!

In this Toddler story time, kids act out the books as they are being read, making them feel part of the story!  Stories, songs, fingerplays, rhymes, and toys help toddlers learn and love to read!

Tuesdays at 11:30am. Registration is NOT required.

(Children learn best through role modeling. Caregivers are asked to be great role models and be attentive and engaged in the story time. Side conversations can take place during free play. Thanks!)

4:00 PM - 5:00 PM

   BIOLOGY: The Study of Living Organisms.      

In May of 2017, the Darby Free Library was one of only 75 libraries in America to be awarded the prestigious, NASA@MYLIBRARY Grant. Its purpose is to teach the disciplines of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math.) to our patrons.

As part of our grant, we initiated a Microscopy Laboratory to introduce and to investigate the vast field of biology and its many sub disciplines, like medicine, botany, and zoology, to our students and patrons.

Nothing beats "Hands On Experimenting and Learning." There is absolutely no substitute for observing scientific specimens live through the eyepiece of a microscope. It is far superior to looking at a dry picture in a textbook. The students are much more interested and learn more.

Our students are having so much fun that they don't even realize that they are learning. Our students can't wait to get their hands on the microscopes and view biologic specimens, and to go outside into our yard and pick their own specimens to observe. We teach them the fundamentals of the Life Sciences, across the biologic spectrum, and the science of light microscopy; that is, how to properly setup and use a light microscope. 

Some students have already evinced an interest in becoming medical researchers and physicians.

All are welcome to attend our exciting sessions, students and interested adults.

1,000 Books Before Kindergarten

1,000 BOOKS BEFORE KINDERGARTEN!

One of the most important things parents can do, beyond keeping kids healthy and safe, is to read with them. That means starting when they are newborns and not even able to talk, and continuing well beyond the years that they can read by themselves. Study after study shows that early reading with children helps them learn to speak, interact, bond with parents, and read early themselves. In addition, reading with kids who already know how to read helps them feel close to caretakers, understand the world around them, and be empathetic citizens of the world!

The Darby Free Library is pleased to present a program titled, " 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten." The goal is to read 1,000 books to your newborn, infant, and/or toddler before your child starts kindergarten.

Start by signing up at the Darby Free Library for a free book and supplies to help you to keep track.
And, yes, you can repeat books.

Tuesdays at 11:30am. Registration is NOT required.

(Children learn best through role modeling. Caregivers are asked to be great role models and be attentive and engaged in the story time. Side conversations can take place during free play. Thanks!)
