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 76 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 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.

Raised Beds for Beginners
6:00 PM

Join Master Gardener Joe Daniels as he shows you how to get the most out of your vegetable garden using less space, time and effort. Raised garden boxes are easier to plant, weed, water, and harvest than in-ground beds. Above ground beds also produce bigger and better yields in smaller spaces than traditional garden rows because you have more control of the soil. Learn which materials work best, how to construct, and how to plant them.
