Planetarium & Space Center (3:53) Looking up at the sky on a clear night can be a magnificent experience. There are millions of unknown stars and planets that are just waiting to be explored. Many children are excited to make those discoveries, but may not have access to resources that help them learn deeply about space. Today we have James Porter from the Christa McAuliffe space center in the studio, whose on a mission to change that. Storytime (17:22) Libraries are known for their storytimes and we are too. Each week at around 15 minutes past the hour, tune in to hear book reviews or live readings of picture books or poetry. Today we have a poetry reading of "The Fire Brigade" by Ella Wheeler Wilcox. Summer Reading (19:11) Summertime is a great time to be a child. There is so much to do! From jam packed adventures at summer camp to lazy days at the pool, children are exploring and learning about the world around them. But they also have the potential to lose some knowledge. Today Rachel has on the phone Mary Bigler a professor at Eastern Michigan University and an acclaimed author. Librarians' Table (39:34) We are around the librarians' table with Elise Silva, and Suzanne Julian, librarians from BYU. They are here to chat about how to help incoming college freshmen at the library.
