Sci Lit Week Sept. 16-21

Join us to celebrate Science Literacy Week, September 16–21, at Elgin County Library branches. Explore science-themed displays, programs, and special events. Limited edition posters designed by Canadian artists are available for free while qualities last.                      

Science Literacy Week highlights Canada’s outstanding scientists and science communicators from coast-to-coast. The goals are to showcase the excellence and diversity of Canadian science and to show how exciting science is. Be it as simple as a science-themed book display encouraging people to read something a little different to multi-day events, the Week offers something for everyone.”                                Jesse Hildebrand, Founder, Science Literacy Week
