Science in the Summer Registration

Children entering grades 2 through 6 can sign up for this free, fun science enrichment program provided by The Franklin Institute. This year we explore the Science of Me. Through engaging hands-on exploration, students discover how food becomes our body's fuel, where oxygen goes when we breathe it, how our brains interpret the world, and what role DNA plays in making us who we are. Two-day session dates are July 10 and 11, or July 22 and 23. Sign up is online and requires an email address. Please visit http://www.scienceinthesummer.com/ to sign up.

On certain mornings the Abington Free Library sparkles. That's when Professor Burton Klein, an award-winning, former Philadelphia schools' administrator, lends his vivacious energy to a multi-faceted series of talks. 

On those mornings the Shorday Room holds comfortable chairs, a well-dressed man and only the posterboard on an easel that he has illustrated, but the most talented and engrossing actors don't need many props.

Come to the Library and learn what his group of regulars knows: Learning from Prof. Burton Klein is very entertaining!
