NASA@ My Library Coming to the Bellmawr Branch!

NASA at the LibraryThe Bellmawr Branch of the Camden County Library System has been selected through a competitive application process to be part of NASA@ My Library, an initiative to engage public audiences nationwide in informal and lifelong learning with the excitement of NASA exploration and discovery. More than 500 libraries across the country applied to take part in the initiative that focusses on science, technology, engineering and math (STEM).

“We are excited to have been selected by NASA to offer this unique opportunity at the Bellmawr branch of the Camden County Library System,” said Freeholder Bill Moen, liaison the Camden County Library System. “The Camden County Library System constantly strives to deliver new and innovative programs to its member communities. If you haven’t been in a library lately, you will be surprised by what you find.”

As a NASA@ My Library Partner, the Bellmawr branch library will hold public programs for various age groups that explore NASA science and technology. The programs will be held between May 2017 and October 2018.

“The Bellmawr Library is one of just 75 public libraries nationwide to be part of this initiative, and we’re thrilled to have been selected,” said Debbie Stefano, Branch Manager. 

More information, including a program schedule, will be available in the coming months at camdencountylibrary.org/bellmawr-branch. The Library will begin offering NASA related programs this summer.

“We look forward to exploring the universe with our patrons of all ages,” said Lisa Brandenburg, Youth Services Librarian.

Bellmawr Library will receive the following benefits as part of the project:

  • Two NASA STEM Facilitation Kits (total value: $750) designed for use in hands-on STEM programming; the kits will include STEM tools and hands-on activities based on the following themes: “Sun-Earth-Moon Connections” and “Expanding Your Senses”
  • An 8-inch tablet computer, pre-loaded with apps, educational games and visualizations relevant to the kit materials
  • A $500 grant to cover the cost of programming
  • Inclusion in a two-day NASA workshop in Denver in February 2018, with an $800 stipend to cover travel costs
  • Additional training and networking opportunities

“Libraries are essentially learning laboratories,” said Kristen Erickson, director for science engagement and partnerships in the Science Mission Directorate at NASA Headquarters in Washington, D.C. “Providing additional tools and resources enable a broader impact for communities, and we’re pleased to connect with libraries across the country to share our science.” 

The Bellmawr branch of the Camden County Library System will use NASA@ My Library resources to create compelling learning experiences for our community and share the story, science and adventure of NASA’s scientific explorations of planet Earth, our solar system and the universe beyond. ... continued
