April NNLM Book Selections are Now Available!

Posted in: Blog

Citizen science is research done by everyday people, anytime, anywhere, to help answer questions scientists can’t answer alone. In order to turn curiosity into impact, Citizen Science Month is recognized annually in April. Community libraries can serve as a hub for citizen science by mobilizing patrons to collect data and spread the word about their efforts, and participants can develop a deeper understanding of scientific and health literacy through their active involvement in the scientific process.

Our friends at SciStarter have easy citizen science ideas to share and some health-related projects selected in collaboration with NLM. There are many citizen science projects that can be done even in a backyard or from home.
To learn more, visit NNLM Reading Club Book Selections and Health Resources: Citizen Science. Choose one of the three featured books. Then either host a digital book club discussion or, when your library reopens, apply for a free NNLM Reading Club Book Kit.
