‘The Wonderful Sky’

Indoor planetarium pops at Thomaston Library for April vacation week

Posted:  Tuesday, April 18, 2017 - 8:00am

Thomaston Public Library will be offering programming for school aged children during April vacation week, daily from April 17 to 21 at 11 a.m. Currently scheduled on April 19 in the gymnasium of the library building is a return engagement of the Northern Stars Planetarium.

This presentation, called The Wonderful Sky, will look at the seasonal night sky and will include discussions of stars, constellations, visible planets, meteors and more. The program is held in a very large inflated planetarium and is limited to an audience of about 50. John Meader has presented several programs at the library during our 40 Days of Summer program and they are fascinating.

Funding for the Northern Stars Planetarium program is partially provided by a Maine State Library grant derived from the generosity of Maine taxpayers donating on their income tax forms.

Other spring vacation break programs will include making marionettes, glass jar lanterns with glitter, stars and Haiku poetry, creation of dream catchers and macrame bracelets. We will also read and have books available that pertain to each project.

All of the programs will begin at 11 a.m. and all are welcome. Refreshments will be served and all the programs are free.
