How will you Science this Science Week?

YPRL Staff

27 July, 2022

Are you a budding scientist? Have you got a thirst for knowledge? Well, the library is the place for you!  

YPRL loves all things STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Mathematics) and this year we are bringing you a huge Science Week program – so big that it needs to be spread over two weeks instead of just one!  

Every branch has an event for you and, if you prefer your library online, we will be premiering a new Science Club video as well!
