Hands-on science activities for all ages! LIGO, the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-wave Observatory near Richland, WA, searches for gravitational waves from exotic events in outer space. Learn more about LIGO's science mission as you make and measure a variety of types of waves and do simple experiments based on light and sound.

It's never too early to introduce your child to the library! Join us each Friday as we make music, learn a little Mother Goose and read some simple stories. Then stick around and visit with other parents and caregivers while your babies play. This program is designed for babies from birth through 2 1/2 years old.

Join the fun every Monday as we sing, dance, play instruments, and read stories at the library.  This program is tailored to the needs of kids 2 1/2 years old and up.
