The McCracken County Public Library is excited to Host the Kentucky Science Center travelling early childhood experience at our  library this summer! Science in Play2Go, a miniature version of Kentucky Science Center’s signature Science in Play exhibit, is open at McCracken County Public Library June 25 – September 18.

Designed specifically for children ages 8 and under, Science in Play2Go is built around the twin concepts of open-ended play and “loose parts” – materials that can be reimagined in countless ways – allowing children to naturally develop 21st century learning and STEAM skills.
Science in Play2Go is provided free of charge to communities and participating libraries thanks to the support and partnership of the Kentucky Department for Libraries and Archives (KDLA).
The free travelling exhibit is open to the community during normal library hours:
Mon – Thurs: 9AM-7PM
Fri & Sat: 9AM-5PM
Sunday: 1-5PM

Field trips and group visits to Science in Play2Go are encouraged; groups, including schools and local community centers, may contact the library to arrange a visit. Science in Play2Go is designed to serve as a resource to the community, providing at-home activities for parents and caregivers to Do Science with children and tools to help facilitate early-childhood learning.

McCracken County Public Library is located at 555 Washington Street in Paducah, Kentucky. The library’s Science in Play2Go experience is available to the public June 25th and running through September 18th. For more information call 270-442-2510 x122.
