"Here. There. Everywhere." NASA exhibit

The Westland Public Library is proud to host the NASA-sponsored Here. There. Everywhere. exhibit (http://hte.si.edu) in its Faust (fireplace) Area during the month of May. The exhibit includes 22 different banners, video footage, and an interactive display table showing how the laws of physics apply in our world, in our universe, and, as far as we know, everywhere. The exhibit is available for viewing during regular library hours. Please see the Events pages in our Children's, Teen, and Adult Departments for upcoming programs celebrating the exhibit. For more space and science-related videos, blogs, and activity guides, visit the Here. There. Everywhere. website.
