The “Here. There. Everywhere.” exhibit was a huge success for Wake County Public Libraries. At East Regional Library over 14,000 visitors passed through the library doors and had the opportunity to view the exhibit panels, utilize the hands on activities and take the literature provided. Many related programs for adults and children at a total of six regional libraries were also offered throughout Wake County NC. During the adult series entitled “Discover Astronomy,” over 80 adults gathered to hear lectures from our partners – the Raleigh Astronomy Club and NASA’s Solar System Ambassadors Program. Youth Librarians planned and presented numerous science related programs at the same six locations where 813 students explored, created, discovered and read about science using the tools provided on the exhibit’s website.
