On Mon., Jan 30, Ferndale School’s African American Parent Network
partners with the Ferndale Area District Library to present a family book club discussion of Hidden Figures,
the untold history of the the brilliant African American women mathematicians who helped get NASA’s space program off the ground, assuring America would win the space race.
A new version for young readers was also added to our collection and parents can pick up copies of both at the library’s circulation desk, throughout January.
Then on Sat., Feb 4, FADL’s Youth Librarians invite young readers and science lovers to continue the adventure of learning about space flight and aeronautics with “Let It Glide,” a hands-on program presented by The Michigan Science Center, where participants grades 4 and up will get to build their own “space shuttle”, as well as collect and analyze their own data!
