Planetarium Tour of the Evening Sky

As part of the Longwood Gardens 2018 Community Read focusing on Women in Science, join us for an evening of planetarium fun at the West Chester University’s Mather Planetarium. The presentation will be given by PhD astronomer, Dr. Karen Schwartz. The program will consist of an overview of what is currently visible in the night sky. In addition, each show focuses on a specific aspect of astronomy, the topic of which changes each month. The shows are appropriate for all ages, however, the content and duration of the show may be more appealing to older children and adults.

Please sign up for this Planetarium show at WCU’s Mather Planetarium using the library’s online registration system.

The Mather Planetarium is located in the Schmucker Science Center on the north campus of West Chester University. The Schmucker Science Center sits on the corner of Church St. and Rosedale Ave. The planetarium is in the link – the one-story round portion of the building that connects the north and south (multi-story) parts of the building. There are several entrances to the Schmucker Science Center however the most direct route to the Mather Planetarium is through the entrance off of Rosedale Ave.
The West Chester University’s Mather Planetarium map can be found online.

Music Mondays @ 11:00 am for children and their caregivers

The Build-A-Band program is based on Differentiated Learning style. It is a performance based and hands on instruments program that gives students the opportunity to try different instruments and spend time working independently in “Music Centers” to develop skill at their own pace. Students not only develop skills on Piano Keyboard, Guitar, Bass, Violin, Drums, Vocals and Percussion, but also develop listening skills, how to compromise when choosing age appropriate songs and how to work together as a band.

The class will meet on February 5, March 5, April 9, May 7 and June 4.
