The Library Partners with TENWEST Festival Oct. 12-21, 2018

Pima County Public Library supports TENWEST Festival Oct. 12-21, 2018

The Pima County Public Library will be supporting the TENWEST Festival once again this fall. We’re helping them kick off the event with donated STEM activities to support the opening night of TENWEST during their Outdoor Family Movie on October 12 from 5-7 pm. You can bring the kids over to this event at the Children’s Museum and create your own pop-up greeting card or learn how to harness of the power of the wind while you build your own pinwheel.

The library’s Book Bike will also be making a pit stop during the STEM Connect's Molecular Gastronomy Demo event at MOCA: Museum of Contemporary Art in Tucson, Arizona, from 3:30 – 4:30pm on October 15. At the event, the Book Bike folks will be giving away Seed Balls, small balls of clay, earth, and local seeds that can be deposited to grow anywhere. They will also share how educators can get their students involved in growing and saving seeds from the Seed Library.
