STEAM* Stories: Telescopes and Light
All Locations
Monday, Oct. 11, 4 pm

Join us for some STEAM* fun on Zoom! After we read a story, participants will learn about a STEAM* concept and work on an engaging STEAM* activity. This month we're going to celebrate the launch of the James Webb Telescope by exploring how scientists use telescopes and filter light to study the universe. A NASA subject-matter expert speaker will also Zoom in to speak more on this topic. Supply kits for this month's activity will be available for pickup by registered participants the week before the program. This program is suggested for grades K-3, but all ages are welcome. Registration is required, as space is limited.

Virtual Book Club for Adults

Wednesday, Oct. 27, 11:30 am - 12:30 pm
Come join us via Zoom for a discussion of the book Turtles All the Way Down by John Green.

John Green, the acclaimed author of Looking for Alaska and The Fault in Our Stars, returns with a story of shattering, unflinching clarity in this brilliant novel of love, resilience, and the power of lifelong friendship.

Aza Holmes never intended to pursue   the disappearance of fugitive billionaire Russell Pickett, but there's a hundred-thousand-dollar reward at stake and her Best and Most Fearless Friend, Daisy, is eager to investigate. So together, they navigate the short distance and broad divides that separate them from Pickett's son Davis. 

Aza is trying. She is trying to be a good daughter, a good friend, a good student, and maybe even a good detective, while also living within the ever-tightening spiral of her own thoughts.

We have a limited number of copies available for check out. Please contact your local branch or the Ceres Library at 209-537-8938 to reserve your copy.
