Check Out Science in the Library: How Library Kits Help Families Share Science Poster session Anaheim Convention Center
Exhibit Hall Poster Area Table 16
Description :

Juvenile library collections should contain interactive materials related to science. Three years ago Oakland Public Library entered into a partnership with Lawrence Hall of Science to create science kits for libraries. Geared toward grades 1-5 and covering a wide range of topics from bird beaks to oil spills, these kits contained: an age-appropriate book, an experiment journal which users kept, detailed instruction sheets outlining the experiment, any needed scientific aids, e.g. a magnifying glass, and a free pass to the museum so that participants could further explore science. Oakland Public Library created and included in the kits a bibliography of other recommended titles that children could check out. An annual science festival was created at each participating library to introduce the kits and spur interest. Evaluation and measurement of this project was accomplished by tracking usage of kits and participation at science festivals. Kit users, festival participants, and library staff were interviewed and asked to fill out written questionnaires. Session participants will bring kits for examination and will set up one or two experiments from the kits which attendees can try. Photos of past science festivals and evaluation data will be available on the posters and in electronic formats.
