Science Literacy Week is September 18 to 22

It’s Science Literacy Week, and the theme this year is ENERGY!

You can’t always see it, but energy is everywhere. It can be kinetic, thermal, chemical, radiant or nuclear. It lights our cities as electricity, heats our houses through thermal radiation, and moves our bodies with chemical reactions. We need to be responsible, though, because not all sources of energy are sustainable.

The Library is celebrating Science Literacy Week with our annual trivia contest, so be sure to check our Instagram for a daily trivia clue and fill out your answers at the link. And at the end of the week, there’s a prize for the student with the most correct answers. Good luck!

And on Wednesday, September 20, join us at noon for a documentary screening in the Fireside Reading Room. We’ll watch Power to the People, a documentary series focused on Indigenous communities across Canada who are leading the way with renewable energy projects. Learn about Gull Bay First Nation’s solar microgrid, Canada’s first fully-integrated remote renewable energy-storage microgrid.

Popcorn and other treats will be provided, and bring your lunch. See you there!
