With the St. Joseph County Public Library’s Main Library closed for renovations, Science Alive, the library’s annual STEM event for kids and adults, will move to the University of Notre Dame this year.
The event will take place from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 8, at the Jordan Hall of Science. Parking will be available in the Joyce Lot. Campus is served by Transpo Route 7.
The event is a collaboration between the library and Notre Dame, which is providing the space as well as some building services free of charge.
The Main Library is scheduled to reopen with an expanded footprint, services and programming in the summer of 2021.
“We are grateful that Notre Dame has offered the Jordan Hall of Science to us for Science Alive this year,” said Erin Lawrence, manager of community engagement for the library. “We’ve partnered with campus faculty and students groups to offer exciting new presentations that require the building’s unique facilities. We’re looking forward to a very special Science Alive.”
Karen Morris, program director for the Advanced Placement Training and Incentive Program in Indiana at the Institute for Educational Initiatives at Notre Dame, helped coordinate the event.
