East Meadow Library Opens Discover Earth Exhibit

The library is one of only 10 libraries nationwide to be chosen for the educational tour which started on Sunday.

The East Meadow Public Library celebrated its opening day of "Discover Earth: A Century of Change" on Sunday. The library was chosen as one of 10 libraries nationwide to host the scientific exhibition.

More than 1,000 people came to the library on Sunday to see the informative display.

"I am so excited and I love the exhibit," Jude Schanzer, director of public relations and programing at the library said. "There are 3-year-olds using it and people are learning so much."

Until Feb. 5, 2013, attendees will be able to walk in the front doors of the library and will be greeted by interactive computer screens, a touch table and games. The exhibit focuses on topics such as weather, water cycle, ecosystem changes, as well as a global view of the changing planet.

"We were one of 10 libraries chosen to show this exhibit," Schanzer said. "This is a huge accomplishment for us."

Discover Earth is made possible through the support of the National Science Foundation. The exhibition and its educational support materials and outreach opportunities are part of the STAR (Science-Technology Activities and Resources) Library Education Network (STAR_Net), a hands-on learning program for libraries and their communities.

When we were looking to buy our home, Roseann from Filmore Realty told us that the library on Front Street, was one of the best in all of Nassau County. I thought it strange that in selling us the house, she was also promoting the Library. Thirty plus years later, our Library is still top-notch and worthy of being selected as one of the 10 in the Nation to house this wonderful exhibition, "Discover Earth", for all to experience and learn [from.]
